Fabulous opportunities for photography and wildlife viewing. Watch out for tractor trailers zipping up and down the road and crawling up your butt. Lots of pullouts to stop and shoot pix.

This was a very nice drive, not a lot of traffic road was maintained. Scenery got boring after a while.

This was a beautiful drive heading north toward Jackson. The mountains were excellent backdrops for the green hills and winding road - yet I was able to maintain speed as the turns were never quite that tight. A gorgeous drive.

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.

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.

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.
