I took this video today working with Big Horn County Weed and Pest. . It overlooks Shell Canyon and Ranger Creek Campground in the Bighorn Mountains. What a view!

Working for Big Horn County Weed and Pest has its advantages. This week we were working in the Big Horn Mountains spraying Canada Thistle on a ridge south of Ranger Creek near the Bench Timber Sale. Below is Shell Canyon, what a view.

Yesterday afternoon we started up the Beartooth Highway ( One of the highest roads in the world) with a summit at just under 11,000 feet. Time ran short so we didn't make the summit. It's only about a two hour drive from Burlington. The Beartooth runs Red Lodge Montana to Yellowstone Park. Most of these photos were taken just a little above the 9,000 foot level at a rest stop. Red Lodge is a beautiful little community.
On the way to the Bear Tooth Highway, we took a few minutes to explore the old Smith Mine just a few miles out of the beautiful town of Red Lodge Montana. A return trip will be required to explore the buildings in detail. NOTE: The story of the mine is on the sign.
