Ever wanted to drive one of those insanely curvy and scenic roads you always see in car commercials? The Beartooth Highway is your chance. The road is one of the most rugged stretches of asphalt in the entire country, winding around 20 peaks that run for 68 miles, from Cooke City, Wyo., into Montana. Along the way, drivers are treated to views of canyons, glacier-carved landscapes and lush forests. Just make sure to keep at least one eye on the road.
