happy jack road

Nice dive with very little traffic. If your going Cheyenne to Laramie it is a must do. It will only take a few minutes longer than the interstate.

The Happy Jack Road is one of my favorite roads to travel west to Laramie. As a landscape photographer, I have my camera right beside me because the change from grassland to hills to unique rock formation is stunning.

This is a good road to travel if you are going to the lakes or a great view of wild life and the mountains. The lakes are fishable and there are 3 of them. Have fun.

We drove from Cheyenne to Curt Gowdy State Park and then on to Happy Jack Bike Trail. The scenery was beautiful and hardly any traffic to deal with. A great alternate to driving I-80 to Laramie.

This is so cool that so many people enjoy this part of Wyoming. I was born on this road and have so many fond memories of this sliver of Wyoming. It's absolutely beautiful.

This road will take you through national forest and private ranch lands. It also takes you by great wind blown rock formations. As you get close to Cheyenne, you will come upon the Duke Energy wind energy farm built on the city landfill. Great use of landfill property.
