We did lots of changes of layers today to deal with the temperature changes - from 4 C (without the windchill - this is what the bike thermometer read) at Beartooth Pass summit to 26 C at lower elevations, back down to 8 C at the top of Bighorn.
Fun sign seen at the "Top of the World" store: Wyoming PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals. Also sighted here, snow plow ready to go, and a huuuuuuge snow blower, equipped with chains.
|A bit of construction on the Beartooth Pass highway, |
but it's a short section and we didn't have any delay.
We did like the sign! The rest of the road was
freshly touched up and in awesome condition! An amazing ride!

|Experimenting with snapping photos on the go - this is Bighorn Basin, |
Don in front and the road just travelled in the mirror!
Sorry about all the bugs we've been collecting along the way on the windshield!

|And we found a lovely little quilt shop just outside of |
Red Lodge, Montana - Washoe Quilt Shoppe
Found a few things that had to follow me home :)
The proprietors are Marilyn Monroe and Elvis impersonators - not in costume today while cooking/serving but there were lots of photos of them on the walls. And, the fella is getting ready to make a run for the Presidency. He was chatting up all the customers about why he thought he needs to serve his country as President!
Wouldn't that be interesting - President Elvis! Yup, that sure would be all shook up!
