Located just northeast of the Yellowstone National Park in south central Montana and parts of northwest Wyoming, the massive Beartooth Range is home to Granite Peak, Montana's highest point, and sits upon the highest true elevation plateau in the US. The mountains are traversed via the Beartooth Pass, often considered one of the most beautiful scenic drives in the country. The name of the mountain range is attributed to a rugged peak found in the range, Beartooth Peak, that has the appearance of a bear's tooth.
