BearTooth Hwy -12- more Glacier Lakes ...and Glaciers

BearTooth Highway -12- The beginning of the BearTooth hwy

September 8th, 2009

This is such a beautiful drive... being refered to as America's most beautiful highway... I broke the pictures up into different pages rather than cram all on one post. Start w/ this post # -9- through # -16- content and text will come when I can get to it.

If you ever get a chance to drive this road, take it; I don't think you will be dissapointed

Onto the Beartooth Hwy, -- highest hwy in America-- 11,000 ft ... that was the hwy. peaks were higher. Clarks ford river was cut into stone & a gorge beyond description.

places like up on the Beartooth HWy in MT. 11,000+ ft Snowpack in places that is actually glaciers... or what's left of them. They'll be gone in 5 years. just glad I got to see them befor they're gone & some other magnificent places. It was litterally touching the heavens & many a prayer was offered up for friends & family. The starkness of the wilderness, high arid mountains, rivers & streams gut 1,000 ft gorges in limestone or granite rock. Water is available & plentiful in places. usually small crossroads of towns of a couple hundred population... fish camps for the fly fishermen trout fishing the streams. It is land that cannot be tamed.

Water. Clear water. all of it. Spring fed or snowpack runnoff. all rivers & lakes so clear you could see the rounded river rock 3to 4 feet on the riverbed. in places you could see small trout. It was a feeling of dipping up a glass of water & drinking. .... so clean & pure..... pure thin air.... no pollution.... no smog. I fly fished in many rivers & need to start "SAVE THE TROUT" ...&



Some of the snowpack left on the mountains are considered glaciers. This is September... it's they've been through all the months of Summer / heat... and snowpack / glaciers are still there. They'll be gone in 5 years. I'm just glad I got to see them before it's gone.

Text under construction for now enjoy the pics.
