The Beartooth Highway is one of the highest roads in the world, ascending to nearly 11,000 feet. It is definitely not a road for large RV's! There are many switchbacks and scenic overlooks that take your breath away and may cause the nervous among you...More

Amazing road to travel! Not to be missed if you are in the area, but be prepared, even in early aug you might get snow. So glad we did not skip this on our way out of Yellowstone.
