C C C Cold morning on the Chief Joseph highway

After waking up in Cody, we headed up and over the Chief Joseph Highway on our way into the North Entrance of Yellowstone. A few bad slides had the Beartooth closed, so we chose a route that headed us up into Cooke City, MT. The Chief Joseph delivered us a road covered in snow and ice, low 20s temps, and an exciting and scary trip through the pass. *Crunch* *Pop* *Crackle* *sludge* were all we heard as we made our way over solid ice as the road snaked back and forth, up and down through the early morning shadows. Once on the other side, we stopped to heat our hands on our exhaust, wind down from the nervous excitement of the pass just finished, and to enjoy a brief glance at a beautiful morning sky.
