It's so hard to even go a month without taking this drive (when the pass is clear of course)! It's one of my favorite drives in this area! And by far the best route to Yellowstone, just for the views! I don't know who in...More

One incredible drive. Feels like the top of the world. Magnificent mountains and marvelous views. But take your time and WATCH THE ROAD - it's narrow and windy.

On top of the world is exactly how you feel when your here,. So the little store named that is a perfect fit. Jaw dropping beauty around every corner on this drive & the pass is the best part. Highly recommend!

Do not miss this if you love great mountain roads. Lots of mountains and lakes. Lots of switchbacks and places to pull off and enjoy the views.

I can't wait to come back here. It was a great ride. So beautiful. A tad chilly, but well worth it. (We were on our Harley). The walls of snow were like 12-14 feet high on the sides of the road. It was really cool....More

There on June 14. All clear, but lots of snow on the sides of the roads. No chains were needed.
