Bill Troutwine - Bear Tooth Pass one of most beautiful drives

Bill Troutwine writes:
Mary Ann, We were actually on the south side of Line Creek Plateau. Line Creek Plateau is the high lake dotted flat that you drove through crossing The Bear Tooth Pass going from Red Lodge to Cooke City. Coming across the pass you would have been within a couple of miles of where we was, however when we were there hunting, the pass had already been closed for the season.

The pass gets so much snow fall that the state usually closes the road in October, and doesn't open it again until June.

The drive through Bear Tooth Pass is one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the United States. Personally I think it is more beautiful and definitely much more untamed than the famed Going To The Sun Highway in Glacier National Park. --Bill Troutwine
