Fleisher Pass.

In Montana there is a tiny little two lane highway, State Route 279, which starts just outside of Helena and heads North and West until it begins to climb up some innocuous looking foothills.

Soon it’s climbing inexorably, hair-pinning and curving through one of Montana’s most treacherous passes: vertigo-inducing drop-off on the left, near-vertical wall on the right. At 6,500 feet, the road suddenly summits at a mind-blowing vista, looking out from the top of the Great Divide.

This is Fleisher Pass.
