A well worth while day trip out the northeast gate from Yellowstone National Park headed up into Montana. This was a beautiful pass with lakes and overlooks and varying scenery. We would definitely recommend this road trip.

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!
