From SLC, we took 189 up to Pinedale and 191 back through Rock Springs. From the other reviews posted, I had expected Teton-like mountains filled with pine trees. The reality is gently rolling hills of sagebrush highlighted by the occasional cow, horse, or pronghorn. There are mountains...in the far, far distance. The speed limit is absurdly low for this highway:... More

US 191 from Rock Springs to Hoback Jct is a beautiful drive. You can continue to Jackson from here or head west. It is posted at 65 MPH with some towns to slow down in. The scenery is awesome and you should afford yourself time to pull off and take pictures. . . It is a well traveled road with... More

Much of this was in the dark, but the majority that wasn't was scenic and you could go the 65mph speed limit pretty easily. I was surprised about both.

We saw different wildlife along the way & the drive was quite scenic. We travelled to Jackson, the Tetons & to Yellowstone by taking this route and enjoyed the drive.

This is an easy scenic route with several passing lanes on the stretch. The Wind River Mountains are expansive and begin to build up around Farson. Wide open vast spaces where you can see occasianal wild horses and numerous Antelope roam

Road is high in traffic due to the oil and gas. Roads do need some improvement. The nice thing is this road has many passing lanes.

It was a day trip from Rock Springs to Pinedale. Beautiful!!!!!! The snow capped mountains rose majestically as we travelled north. =) We went to Soda Lake and Fremont Lake and the snow capped mountains at the end of each lake just took our breaths away.... =)

US 191 from Rock Springs to Pinedale is well maintained... and very well patrolled. You will pass State Troopers on this route, almost guaranteed. This road is also one of the most deadly in the state with heavy trucks, gas field workers, travel trailers and various wild animals crossing frequently. The towns of Eden, Farson and Boulder are quaint and... More
