M2C Mountain West - North Dakota Road Trip - 4000 miles in 8 days ***pic heavy***

Well, it’s summer and that means it was time for a proper road trip in the M2C. I actually was mulling a fall trip, but then said f*** it and planned everything in about a week and booked all 2 days out. The target destination/turnaround point was Bowman, ND. Why? Because North Dakota was the only state I hadn’t been to! Sought out mostly 2-lane roads and avoided interstates to the extent possible. Departed LA on July 2 and returned on July 9.

Nightly stays were:

July 2: Flagstaff, AZ
July 3: Durango, CO
July 4: Steamboat Springs, CO
July 5: Spearfish, SD (Miles City, MT)
July 6: Red Lodge, MT
July 7: Idaho Falls, ID
July 8: Tahoe City, CA (Squaw Valley)

Some of the passes by elevation:

7,000+
Rio Blanco Hill (CO 13)
Kingman Pass (Yellowstone Grand Loop Rd – US 89)
Luther Pass (CA 89)

8,000+
Monitor Pass (CA 89)
Conway Summit (Eastern Sierra Scenic Byway – US 395)
Mount Rose Highway (NV 431)

9,000+
Rabbit Ears Pass (US 40)

10,000+
Coal Bank Pass (MDH – US 550)
Molas Pass (MDH – US 550)
Grand Mesa Summit (Grand Mesa Scenic Byway – CO 65)
Beartooth Pass (Beartooth Hwy, US 212)

11,000+
