    hope you're up and running soon. The top of Beartooth did remind me of Switzerland. The wildflowers above the treeline, morraine left behind by some glacier in the good old, old, days, freshness galore, the secret weather system that isn't any thing like the valley before or after..... The only thing missing was the large Chalet serving fondue and raclette. There is a restaurant at the top of the climb but it didn't have the right vibe for me.

    I've never been able to figure out why North Americans can't couple fine dining with the mountain top experience. The only exception I can think of is the Eagle's Eye Restaurant at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Golden, B.C.

    An amazing place:





    Golden is about an hour west of Lake Louise. Here's the link, and don't miss this if you're in the area:

    Anyway, at least Red Lodge and Cooke City have some cool places.

    ...hope you're up and running soon...
    Thanks; the car is out for the rest of the season, and then it's going on the block in the spring. I've had my fun with it, and a local shop has a good deal on a Duc ST 2....
