5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Any of the mountain roads from Sheridan to Yellowstone are wonderful drives. Not too crowded and lots to see.

“Great place to see wildlife”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I saw 6 moose in 10 minutes! 14A is a great drive, only open in the summer. Shell Falls: gorgeous. Cloud Peak: beautiful. Huge skies, tons of stars. Definitely check it out if you're in Northern Wyoming.

“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is a magnificent area of geography. The mountains soar all around and the trip up to and down the other side of the Bighorn is amazing. The snow across the top only adds to the ambience of what is a wonderful experience

Gorgeous drive on roads, clear blue clean skies, wildlife, trails (although snow closed some), solitude. All good.

“Sheridan's backyard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

There is so much to love about the Bighorn National Forest. It's like Sheridan's very own playground, 30 minutes away. Hiking, biking, driving...it's easy to waste a day exploring up there.
