After driving through Yellowstone, I went Camping and Hiking near Cooke City in Montana. I camped north of the highway. If I remember correctly, I took the Lulu pass road up into the mountains. You don’t have to go far at all to get to wonderful campsites.

Here’s where I camped. Not a big fancy campsite, but I don’t need one. There wasn’t much traffic on this road, so it wasn’t so bad being right next to it.

I got up around 4:30am to walk up a hill near where I camped to set up the GoPro on a tripod to take a time lapse of the sunrise. I don’t know why I keep doing this around here – there’s never any clouds in this region in the morning so there’s not really any sunrise to capture.

Later that morning I went for a hike
