Beartooth Highway Update 6/2/13 – 9:00 am

From the Montana Department of Transportation:

The status of the Beartooth Pass remains the same as yesterday. On the MT side the PASS is open all the way to the Stateline and the road is Bare and Dry.

On the WY side; the PASS continues to be closed  at higher elevations of the Highway including Beartooth Pass.  Yellowstone National Park plows are working to re-open the Wyoming section of the Highway.  As of yesterday the road still had a lot of Ice and Drifts up high.  Hoping for word of the Highway re-opening tomorrow – 6/3/13.

Lots of skiers and snowboarders calling today to see if they can get to snow! If anyone makes it please send pictures! Would love to see it! info@beartoothhighway.com

Cooke City Montana - Beartooth Highway

The Cooke City cemetery is located only a short distance from town, adjacent to the Gallatin National Forest Service Campground. Within the plot lie the remains of many who cherished the hope for the future of Cooke City, including one of its founders, Horn Miller.   When lumber for coffins were needed, men of the community simply used parts of uninhabited buildings to construct the boxes.
