Through winter as I look up to the mountains, one of the most anticipated weekends that I look forward to is Memorial Weekend when the Beartooth Highway opens up. This year the snow was phenomenal. It was literally like driving through tunnels. Some were as high as 30 feet. Yellowstone Park service is responsible for plowing Highway 212 from the Northeast entrance to the Wyoming/Montana line. Montana plows the from there down the switchbacks. As you can see, there is some big heavy duty equipment used. We came down the switchbacks to Red Lodge, 78 degrees, green grass and wildflowers. I am so fortunate to live in this country of such great contrast and beauty.
