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.

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.
