Bears & The Beartooth Hwy (US 212)

First, an apology for no posting yesterday on Wednesday, June 22, but the B & B in Red Lodge MT,  had no wi-fi or alternative Internet hook-up!

The group had a leisurely breakfast, of course served by our host, Greg again... I am afraid that this could become an expectation when we return home..... an unmet one.

As we rode toward the final destination of the day, the Beartooth Hwy, we had to go through Grand Teton NP and, of course, take the obligatory picture of the beautiful range.

The trip to the Beartooth was up the east side of the Grand Loop with stops for geyser pools next to a lake

And most curious of all was a stare down with one of Smokey's no good relatives...... or at least one. The stare down was successful due to the bear deciding that killing and devouring us by the roadside was not worth his time

And then the upper and lower falls (water that is) were visited. Then riding the Beartooth we had to get what has become a daily occurrence, a group hug.... I mean picture, and this one was with Pilot Peak in the background. Then the ride along the Beartooth with all the ranges surrounding it covered in snow was most impressive including the interesting descent.

We reached our destination, a B&B, just outside Red Lodge, MT and were quickly off to dinner in town and then to bed...... very tired but pleased with the weather and with what we had been able to see. Tomorrow is back across the Beartooth and then to Mammoth Hot Springs and the pinnacle, Old Faithful!
