Charles Kuralt called this the most beautiful highway in America. It even has its own website which features a 20 minute video.
Red Lodge is about nine hours south of our home in Calgary. It would be quite the trip if we first headed directly for the Beartooth and then made our return trip up through the Going To The Sun Highway and southern Alberta's Cowboy Trail both of which I've written about in earlier posts. This makes for a 2300km (1400mile) round trip.

I'll close this post off with another Charles Kuralt quote:
"Thanks to the interstate highway system, it is now possible to travel across the country from coast to coast without seeing anything."
Here's to backroads and less traveled routes! If you've driven the Beartooth please leave a comment!
