Beartooth Highway Avalanche

In the spring of 2005, there was a spectacular avalanche in Montana on the Beartooth Highway. My mother was a newspaper reporter in the area at the time and had connections that enabled her to get these incredible aerial photographs of the damage caused by the avalanche. The long shot images reveal the true scale of the damage. Since this incident, the roadway has been repaired and it is a beautiful and amazing experience to drive (or bike) up or down the switchbacks of the pass.
