The Beartooth Highway is Open!

The Beartooth Highway is Open!

The Beartooth Highway is now officially open for the 2013 summer travel season as of 10:55 am 5/25/13

Travelers to the Highway will find that winter snows remain at higher elevations of the road.  Travelers should plan on slower driving conditions at high elevations and on Beartooth Pass.  Outdoor adventurers often take advantage of remaining high elevation snows and motorists should watch for traffic parked along the shoulders of the Highway.

The Montana Department of Transportation reminds motorists to watch for possible intermittent icy spots in the higher elevations and wet spots could freeze as the temperatures drop at night.

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.
