Glorious Sunday

Michael decided this morning that he needed a day of rest not being on his feet so we decided to see if Gina and Rollie would like to take a drive.  And too, today was to be our only day of sunshine for a few days if you believe the weatherman. 

Gina and Rollie were totally game and off we went with the 3 furkids in tow.  Our destination was the Beartooth Highway out of Red Lodge, MT.  First stop was the Grizzly Bar in Roscoe.  We had a delicious lunch and indulged ourselves with two Grizzly Delights—the vanilla ice cream rolled in tiny chocolate chips and drizzled with raspberry and chocolate sauce—OH, YUM!!

It was a beautiful sunny, cool day and the views at the top of the Beartooth Highway could not have been better.  Beartooths fall color

Beartooths a lake Notice the waves on the surface of the lake, the wind was blowing so hard up there it was difficult to stand up!

Beartooths more fall color

Beartooths the tooth The sharp pointed spire is the actual “bear tooth.”

The Beartooth Highway is a steep, crooked road connecting the towns of Red Lodge, and Cooke City with another road—the Chief Joseph Highway going to Cody, WY.  It is only open from about Memorial Day weekend until the first snowfall in the fall closes it.  It is another one of those places we never tire of showing to friends and family.

After taking in the views we turned around and headed back down the mountain making a quick stop in Red Lodge at the candy store and one other place in which I always like to stop.  We then stopped at the local gas station to purchase drinks for the trip home—don’t know why poor Rollie got the job walking all three furkids--Beartooths Rollie walking the dogs

We arrived home happy and tired having seen some incredible scenery with great friends today!
