Well, If there is a bright side to that, it would appear that there wasn't a bunch of oncoming traffic.

After having spent time in the Dakotas, I much prefer the surrounding water to be in more liquid form. :)

Ya Deano, They closed the road both ways right after I got past the gate so I was up there on my own. That was a fun trip going over the Continental Divide with snow and ice on the road.

Ran Beartooth pass on Sept 11 from west to east. That is the first time I have ever had white knuckles when driving on dry paved roads. There was a lot of construction going on up there and met a lot of rock trucks. They take up a lot of the road.

Beartooth is closed now till next spring or summer. Beartooth is about 11,000 ft and going east you drop about 6,000 ft in about 12 miles. Not for the faint of heart.

That's what I see at a minimum going trapping or winter air boating. Glad you made it out alive!

Pretty country there, you have bigger trees there and more of them then we have in most of Alaska. You are also getting the cold and snow this year. We are having a 2 plus week warm spell, its like spring. Mid 40's, only freezing occasionally at night, snow melting and going away. Where snow has melted off the grass, we have green grass sprouts coming up. Unheard of for Jan for more then a couple days at a time. Ice is still 2 plus feet thick on the lakes, but puddles on top of it make it look like open water. But, have no fear, it will be cold again soon enough, and more snow will come, and the water will freeze again. Enjoy it while you can. Bud
