I'm running out of adjectives. I stopped for lunch at Painter Outpost and overheard a guy say he'd wanted to do that ride for 25 years. I guess I've wanted to do it for 15. It was worthy of the wait.

Somewhere along here is the high point of the Beartooth, the highest highway in Wyoming, 10,947 ft.

Mudslides on May 20 caused by heavy rain and snow runoff damaged the road in 13 locations. The Beartooth Highway (Hwy 212) is closed from the Parkside Campground, approximately 10 miles south of Red Lodge, to the Montana/Wyoming border.
I'll have to come back to finish the ride.
