We are a couple of retirees who plan to drive from Seattle to Chicago in early June 2006. We'd like to take the Beartooth Highway, since it looks spectacular, but we wonder whether our vehicle is suitable. Would it be reckless to try it in our family minivan (regular front-wheel drive; regular tires). Is a 4X vehicle recommended?
We are intrepid but, I hope, not stupid! What is the advice of seasoned Beartooth travellers?
