Very scenic. Wanted to go to falls but at the Visitor Center we were told they were closed for repairs. Smoky this year. Wish that info was posted.

A favorite drive of mine for the last 30 years. Love the scenery and the fact that it's not crowded like Yellowstone or Colorado. There is camping along the way in the Big Horn Forrest and a lot of side roads to explore. Can't wait...More

It's the intersection of Highway 16 and County Road 33. I believe there is a sign "Crazy Woman Canyon." Very easy to find. Google "crazy woman canyon road" to see a map.
