Today we drove again all day in the jeep by taking the Beartooth Highway and Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. This drive was absolutely beautiful and certainly worth the heart in the throat roads! I have decided that if I can handle this drive (at least most of the time) and survive then anyone can do it! It was worth the trip for sure! Unfortunately, I forgot to charge the battery for the camera and don't have a back up so lesson learned! I missed some good shots. We did not see much wildlife but did get a shot of a chipmunk that turned out well. We did see a beaver scampering up the rocks on a hill and I thought I got two shots before the camera bit the dust but that did not happen! We have mental pictures but that does not share well on the blog! Sorry! We also ran onto a mining operation that was out of operation and is reported to be the worst mining disaster in 1947 and this is what prompted changes in the mining regulations. Then after a couple of stops at a local antique shop or two we traveled back to the RV. (Don't worry kids we did not find anything today that will require you to wonder if we lost our mind and "what were they thinking!!")
Following are some pics from our drive here to Cody and then from our drive today. Some of the shots on the way here and the drive today are specifically taken for Pam to appreciate!
See everyone soon!!
