The Beartooth Highway was said by On the Toad correspondent Charles Kuralt to by "the most beautiful roadway in America." The Beartooth Highway climbs to an astounding 10,947 feet above sea level and since its completion in 1936 it has awed visitors with it's astonishing views of one of the most rugged and wild areas in the lower 48 states.
