The Chief Joseph Highway winds for nearly 50 miles, connecting Cody, Wyoming to Yellowstone National Park’s northeast entrance towns of Cooke City and Silver Gate, Montana. Named for the fabled chief of the Nez Perce Indians who led 1,000 people on an arduous escape from far western Montana in 1877, Chief Joseph and his tribe eluded the U.S. Calvary for hundreds of miles until an early October snowstorm and diminishing food forced them to surrender just 30 miles from Canada.
