we drove over the mountains on our trip to Yellowstone and were fortunate to find some hand-gliders out on that beautiful day. Some may look at the mountains as an obstacle they must pass over, but that day we were able to see how others use their majestic height to explore the skies over Sheridan. I admired their bravery as... More

Camped in the southern part of park along 16. First couple of nights in the high elevations and the third in the Ten Sleep area. Two completly different terrains and you need to visit both areas to understand the beauty of the park. Ten Sleep area is where all the climbers go so it's kind of hippy like. If youre... More

I was at Big Horn for a trail race. We transverse through mountain tops above tree lines, fields of wild flowers, upland prairie, deep canyons, and creeks. The scenery was breathtaking, so is the elevation (4,000m / 13,000') Beware of wildlife, too!

WOW!! The Big Horn Mountains are AMAZING!! We traveled over them on our way to Cody, WY coming from Rapid City, SD. The views are breathtaking however being the driver I didn't get to enjoy them as much as the rest of the family. Rt 14 is a winding road which moves up and down over the Big Horn Mountains.... More

In the Big Horn Mountains about 20 miles west of Dayton WY there is a great hike of about 2 miles. It is the Black Mountain Fire Lookout, built in the 1930's by the CCC's. It is built on the very top of a peak. It takes about an hour to hike there from the trailhead, but it is well... More

We visited the Big Horn Canyons in Wyoming this past summer. We have a son who is 7, and went with my great aunt and uncle who are in their 60's, and we all had a wonderful time! This truly is a thing to see for all ages! The most amazing part of the visit was the overlook into the... More

Take time for this side track to your trip. East of Lovell, stop at the visitor's center to get a great brief film of what to see. The lady who runs the VC said they've had sightings of the horses every day. Then, east again to the turn off and head north on WY 37 at about 9:30 am. When... More

Because we wanted to see the Big Horn Medicine Wheel, we took the northern route over the Big Horns (14/14A) rather than the southern route. Even though the road to the medicine wheel was closed, I'm glad we did. First of all, I can't believe how high we climbed (9000+ feet). It was a beautiful sub-alpine valley, and there was... More

Great place to camp & ride 4 wheelers. Stayed at the Tie Flume campground and it was nice. Down side is there is ABSOLUTELY no cell service or internet for about 30 minutes before you reach your destination. There was a satalite phone that you could pay to use at $1 a minute at the nearest stop(maybe 10 minutes away).... More
