From Beartooth Pass to Cody, we passed some beautiful scenery. After we left Cody, we traveled through an arid plain between the Absaroka Range and the Bighorn Mountains.

The Bighorn Mountains


We climbed a steep grade from 6,000 feet up to the plateau atop the mountains at just over 9,000 feet, where patches of snow still covered the ground in spots. We had a spectacular view of the plain we left below us as we struggled toward the top.


That night we stayed in a primitive Forest Service campground, where the water came from a well with a hand pump. The water was good, but a bit sandy.
