|Cooke City Montana:|
I hope you like this over view shot as I wrenched my
knee falling through deep snow on the side of this mountain to get the shot.
|End of the road folks!|
|This is the Eastern entrance to Cooke City which is actually closed after a couple miles and only open|
to people on snowmobiles all the way to Red Lodge, Montana some 75 miles. So
in the winter there is only one way in and out of the town.
|This is the Western entrance to the town coming through Yellowstone National Parks North East entrance.|
|As you can see the snow is deep and constant a perfect place for man and machine.|
Not to many women to be found in this little haven of the modern day cowboy with his
|Cowboys removing their toys.|
|The photo here was published in Montana Magazine and the reason I made a couple trips to|
the end of the world i.e. Cooke City.
|Lots of inexpensive rooms to be had in Cooke City mid winter, but like I wrote|
not to many women to be found so forget about the big nightlife. It is all dudes!
|Most of the small businesses are closed in winter and the snow is very deep...|
|...burying everything very deep. These photos were taken in January with several months of snow to come yet!|
|This venue was open and had good lunches|
|I guess you could rent these out but bring a shovel|
|It has been a long cold wet winter in Cooke City and people tell me it is|
every year here on the edge of the Yellowstone
