Here’s a few photos on our ride through Glacier National Park, Montana.

 

 

This was my first trip here to the park.  It was very impressive.  We didn’t stray off the road much due to time constraints.  If you really want to get the most out of your visit, you’ll need a few days to get off the paved roads and take some hikes up to the glaciers, lakes etc.

Just putting a face to this motorcycle blog!

I usually ride alone on my motorcycle trips, so I don’t have many photos of myself.  Here’s one from my last ride out in Southern California.  I was on a ride along the Pacific Coast Highway.  This photo was taken in a cafe in Morro Bay, CA.

Here’s some more photos along the Beartooth Highway.

I exited Yellowstone National Park’s northeast exit and rode along the Beartooth Highway.  The ride took me to 10,947 feet before decending down the mountain into Montana.  A windy road with lots of zigzags and switchbacks.  As I crossed over the top it was quite windy as I rode through some snow flurries.

Wayfinding-Map-JPEG-June-2-2010I’m starting to plan my next motorcycle camping trip.  This is a ride I’ve wanted to do for quite some time.

The Beartooth Highway is a 68 mile stretch of US Highway 212.  I plan on starting at the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park and ride east to Red Lodge, Montana.

Quote from http://beartoothhighway.com/wild-beartooth/

“Heralded as one of the most scenic drives in the United States, the Beartooth Highway, a National Scenic Byways All-American Road, features breathtaking views of the Absaroka and Beartooth Mountains, and open high alpine plateaus dotted with countless glacial lakes, forested valleys, waterfalls and wildlife.

The Beartooth All-American Road passes through what is known today as the Beartooth Corridor. Surrounded by the Custer, Gallatin, and Shoshone National Forests, traveling parallel to the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, and abutting Yellowstone National Park, the Highway sits in a million-plus acre wilderness. Visitors have the rare opportunity to experience and explore pristine, untouched alpine and montane landscapes, lush forests, and alpine tundra in the space of a few miles. It is one of the highest and most rugged areas in the lower 48 states, with 20 peaks reaching over 12,000 feet in elevation. In the surrounding mountains, glaciers are found on the north flank of nearly every mountain peak over 11,500 feet high. The Road itself is the highest elevation highway in Wyoming (10,947 feet) and Montana (10,350 feet), and is the highest elevation highway in the Northern Rockies.”
