This month I’m going to be featuring photographs from Yellowstone & Glacier National Parks! All photographs were captured on a vacation that I and Annie took in June of this year.
We visited Yellowstone National Parks and Glacier within one week and it was an amazing trip filled with beautiful vistas and majestic waterfalls. I’ll try to show a bit of each throughout this month, and seeing as we have 5 mondays, we should be able to get a good set of wallpapers that envelop the entire trip!
Our first destination after touching down in Montana was the Beartooth Mountain Range.
We had our sights set on the pass which goes from Red Lodge, Montana to the Northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park: The Beartooth Highway. It was quite possibly one of the most beautiful drives that I have ever taken. You start at no elevation and then within a 5 mile span you are at the top of the world looking down on the Beartooth Mountains.
We initially were worried, because even June it is still iffy whether or not you are going to be able to drive through some of these higher passes. We were greeted with tons of snow, but luckily the roads were in perfect condition after having been plowed only weeks before we left. It was as if they knew we were coming!
I loved this mountain pass, every mile there was something else interesting to stop and look at. This particular valley was just off the road and off to the left was a huge waterfall from all the melt from the snow. It was definitely a beautiful place to stand and just take in the scenery.
