By the time we got done winding through Southern Montana and Northern Wyoming... we didn't leave much time to actually ride the Black Hills. :) bummer... now we'll have to go back... :)
We rolled through Helena and across Hwy 12 to drop down for a night in Big Timber.

When we got up the next morning we rolled the three bikes, a Goldwing, A Silverado and a Raider, east to Columbus where we turned south to Red Lodge and the Northern approach to Bear Tooth pass.

If you ride anywhere near the NW corner of Wyoming or the SW part of Montana... You've got to ride the Bear Tooth... it's a mountain you want to remember...
... and after the heat of the plains to the North and East... the top of the Mountain will reward you...

|*You've got to stop at the "Top of the World" ... don't you?"|
We came down off the South side, heading for Cody... the road doesn't wind as tight on the Wyoming side... but... it's still not lacking for views to remember...

We spent so much time riding this mountain... we chose to bunk in Cody that night, and head for the Bighorns, the next day...
... and so... I'll continue that... the next day :)
