This was a highlight of our road trip! Part of the road was closed - we went as far as we could go! The view was incredible! A little scary because of the winding road and elevation. But the view was breathtaking!

Not for the faint of heart, the two-lane highway is well maintained and wide enough, but prepare for lots of switchbacks with sheer drop offs. The views were somewhat impaired by the smoke from the dozens of wildfires burning across Montana. Yet, the majesty of...More
