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

Beartooth Highway Wyoming & Montana

Whirlpools often form when water rushes through a rough channel.  Water glancing off rocks starts spinning as it is hit by other water rushing by.  Any material caught up in the whirlpool will spin with the water.  In time, spinning sand, pebbles and grave may carve potholes, like the ones seen in the rocks above the bridge.  During the construction of Lake Creek bridge, boulders were removed from the creek’s bed the water channel was changed exposing the potholes.  Watch for them when you visit Lake Creek Falls.

Fishing Beartooth Highway

The cutthroat is the only true western native trout. Originally wide spread throughout the state, it is now relegated to the higher, cooler, more inaccessible back country lakes and streams. Cutthroats are easily identified by the bright red “cut” on the lower jaw.
