I've been wanting to hike through the Beartooth Mountain range along the East Rosebud (AKA: "Beaten Path") for many years. In fact, I think it is fair to say it was on my "bucket list" (things I want to do before I kick the bucket).
People willing to join me for this once in a lifetime experience - my dear husband, Joe and my dear daughter, Michelle. Above, you can see us getting ready to head out from the Chief Joseph Trailhead, located near Cooke City, Montana. We are preparing to hike 26 miles through the Beartooth Mountain range - coming out at the East Rosebud Trailhead.
The night seemed mild as we slept snugly in our bags, but I noticed frost on the grass near the lake when I went out to take these pictures at dawn.
