What a great way to start the day. We left our hotel in Cody, made a quick gas stop and then started up Chief Joseph Highway. Can't beat that!
Dead Indian Summit, looking down on the road we're going to ride next.
Still haven't adjusted the timer to old man speed.
Alls well that ends well.....
To get a better angle I asked "Holt" from Tennessee if I could use his truck bed for a better shot. He indulged me and moved his truck so I could take the pic. Then I took one of him and his dog so he could send it to his girlfriend. Thanks Holt!
The junction for Chief Joseph, and Bear Tooth highways. You can see the Bear Tooth peak in the background. The Bear Tooth highway is a spectacular 67 mile ride. The road reaches elevations of just under 11,000 feet (the highest is 10,977). We will ride the Bear Tooth to Red Lodge, Montana, have lunch and ride it again the other directon to Cooke City, Montana where we will stay overnight.
Can you see the watery ghost?
Red Lodge, Montana. We had lunch at Bogarts.
They have neat old signs hanging everywhere...
Lots of bikes in Red Lodge, a well preserved Goldwing above and the back half of a BMW below.
