We didn't stop and explore the mountains on our drive from Sheridan to Cody but we didn't enjoy the scenery of the Bighorn Mountains. There are lots of turnouts for photos and viewing along the mountain road. We saw lots of signs of people using the mountains and the forest for horseback riding and hiking.

The mountains are so vast and beautiful! And there is no one there. Very peaceful with amazing views.

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
