If you don't like windy roads then this Highway is definitely not for you! We were recommended to travel this highway by a number of friends who have been to the States before. We weren't disappointed! Awesome views at every turn, mountains, meadows, snow, wind!! (And HIGH altitude!) It's all there but all worth the effort! We left from Cody and ended up in Red Lodge for lunch. We then turned around and came back along the same direction and into the North East entrance to Yellowstone. There are plenty of pullouts to stop and take in the breathtaking scenery as well. It was definitely worth the couple of hours extra that it took to drive. A must see if you're in the vicinity!

11,000’ altitude......BEAUTIFUL views.....especially from the Vista. We drove this highway the day after it reopened after having been closed due to a couple big snow storms. Some areas the snow was so deep.....the plows had cut right thru the snow with snow walls on the side of the highway....so cool!!

Twisting and turning up and down the switch backs. This road has great views at every turn. We stopped at several pull-offs and wondered around. When we reached the pass, we got out and climbed a small escarpment and the views got even better. We walked over to a glacier/permanent snow field, and just stood and gazed at the numerous views.

Took this route towards Cody Wy the end of September. It’s actually hard to put into words the incredible views this trip has. Charles Kuralt called it the most beautiful highway in the USA and yuh know what I have to agree with him. I’ve lived in Colorado for over 40 years so I don’t say this lightly. Yellowstone has been on my list for awhile but this just made it that much more enjoyable. So do yourself a favor just drive it and see for yourself.

This was a highlight of our road trip! Part of the road was closed - we went as far as we could go! The view was incredible! A little scary because of the winding road and elevation. But the view was breathtaking!
