More of the Coronado Trail

 

US 191 used to be US 666, the "Devils Highway." With over 400 curves in 93 miles and sheer drop offs, the Coronado Trail has been called the most dangerous road in America. If North Carolina has the "Tail of the Dragon", Arizona has the "Tail of the Devil".

The border! However, plans to continue on into Canada and return to the US via SK 18 & 37 and MT 241 & 66 aborted because of no service stations, plus the Canadian Grasslands National Park was closed. So I just took some pics and headed back to Malta.

Downtown Red Lodge, MT, east of Yellowstone. I abandoned plans to return via West Yellowston​e and Jackson because of a low battery affecting early morning starts (thus avoiding the colder high country).

Laundry day back in Cody!
