We went on a multi-day backpacking trip; the scenery was spectacular; it was easy to navigate on the trails. We were in the Cloud Peak Wilderness area for much of our trip, so we had to ford creeks, but we expected that and were prepared for it. Gorgeous wildflowers this time of year; we saw Moose, Pika, and Mule Deer.

Okay so I have never been to Wyoming before and all I am thinking is why not!? It's the most beautiful state in the US, from border to border, it's breathtaking, if you've never been you must go, it's absolutely spectacular!

Climbing out of Sheridan for about 2 hours, Hwy 14 is a fantastic way to see the amazing geology and forests surrounding the city. Shell Falls is a must stop. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the incredible beauty this shirt drive offers.

From Yellowstone to Cody, driving on Rt. 14. Bighorn National Park is yet another natural surprise. There simply aren't enough adjectives to describe this and all the scenic wonders in Wyoming. A week surely doesn't permit you to see everything. The dramatic landscape is breathtaking! Note the huge rocks that stand alone - some as big as a house. Apparently... More

I never had the chance to really hike it, but from town to the Wyoming High Country Lodge, I had the chance to visit the waterfalls (4 miles from the lodge Rt 13) and had the opportunity to see the beauty while driving. SPEECHLESS! I can't even describe the beauty as I left-- fog, light rain, sunrise (9am). I included... More

The road through the bighorn National forest was very scenic, it was beautiful. There are few stops made available to gaze at the infinite landscape. We stopped by the medicine wheel, it's a 1hour hike, but the scenery from up there was remarkable. It felt very good to breathe the air there.

Our original plan was to camp for two nights within the National Forest, but it rained both nights so we ended up driving through and seeing everything we wanted to in one day, which worked out nicely. We left Sheridan in the morning and took highway 14 to Shell before coming back on the south side to Buffalo. We stopped... More
