Beartooth Highway

 

 

The Beartooth Highways is one of the most beautiful drives in America. Sadly, it’s only open for about 3 months out of the year due to the large amount of snow it receives in the winter. Driving the Beartooth in the fall is a great time to do it. If you want to plan a trip, you better hurry before there’s too much snow.

Red Lodge

 

 

Red Lodge is a great choice for a day trip. It’s a small town that is a true symbol of Montana hospitality. It you make a trip to Red Lodge, make sure you stop at the Montana Candy Emporium.

Glacier National Park

 

 

Late summer and fall are the best times to experience Glacier National Park. The cooler temperatures make it perfect for hiking. If you plan on heading to Glacier this fall, make sure you take bear spray. Bears are very active this time of year preparing for the long winter.
