The Bear's Tooth
Photo By Mack Frost

  • Title: The Bear's Tooth
  • State/Province/Region: Montana
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Yellowstone Nat' Park
  • Nearest Town: Red Lodge, Montana
  • Brief Directions: Take US-212 south from Red Lodge, Montana. The route is one of the accesses to the Northeast Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It climbs to an altitude of 11,000-feet, crossing the border from Montana into Wyoming. A great loop tour follows US-212 from Red Lodge about 35-miles to the Junction with WY-296, the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway and turns left toward Cody, WY. Follow WY-296 48-miles to the junction with WY-120 and turn right 16-miles to Cody, or left to return to Red Lodge by way of Belfry, MT.
  • Notes: The highway climbs to 11,000-feet altitude, with many hairpin turns and breath-taking vistas at every point along the way. Take plenty of warm clothing and rain gear, as the weather can change very quickly.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: A pinnacle of granite called the Bear's Tooth, which gives its name to the range of mountains surrounding it. This vantage point is from the saddle between the East and West Summits of the Beartooth Highway, US-212, and actually lies in Wyoming, looking at an angle into Montana.
  • Gear: A good vehicle, tripod, multiple memory cards, layered clothing and good boots.

    Very colorful capture David! I agree, it's a great place to visit/photograph. It's a shame that the "middle bridge" gave way. Would have been neat to work with the entire area. Still a fabulous...
