After spending the better part of last week in Montana and Yellowstone National Park, I’m home again and ready to get back to work. I had an absolutely wonderful time traveling with five other travel writers while being hosted by some fantastic people.
You’ll be hearing a lot more about that trip in the days ahead, but some of the things I did while I was there included riding the Beartooth Highway, kayaked on Lake Yellowstone with OARS, went wolf spotting in Yellowstone with the ranger in charge of the program, and trail riding at the Lazy E-L Ranch. In short, it was a very busy, but very fun week.
As you might expect, the scenery was spectacular in Montana and the park. The Beartooth Highway has been called the most beautiful drive in the country, and with good reason. The views are amazing and breathtaking, and every turn brings something new to be discovered, including snow capped peaks, rushing waterfalls, and clear blue mountain lakes. But beware. If you make the drive yourself, the weather can be a bit fickle. Even at the end of August, we witnessed heavy snow and whiteout conditions, on two consecutive days. That’s life in the mountains I suppose!
If you’d like to see some photos from the trip, I’ve put together another gallery. You can take a peek by clicking here. Hope you enjoy!
