My wife and I traveled through the forest on our cross country trip. We wanted to take a "back road" and get off the highway for a bit. What a gorgeous place! Some of our favorite pictures and videos that we took during the trip were taken in Bighorn. I would love to go back and spend more time in... More

One of the best kept secrets in mountain travel. Virtually no commercialization in mountains. See Wyoming is Wild in these mountains.

We drove through on our way back from Yellowstone. The roads through this area are unreal. Lots of scenic stops along the way, definitely check out the falls! And I got to see a bull moose in the wild for the first time in my life. Amazing.

The Big Horn is a breathtakingly mountain range. You go up and up until you reach an altitude of 11,000. Mind the speed limits as there are some real s-curves. There are many overlooks to stop and take pictures. The top of the mountain is huge b

We passed through the Bighorn Mountains on our trip between the Black Hills, SD and Yellowstone National Park. We took US 14 to 14A on our way to Medicine Wheel on the west side of the mountains. The route was amazingly beautiful. The eastern slopes are tree covered, giving way to the plateau at the top, followed by a steep,... More

After 3 days in Yellowstone, the mountain vistas, waterfalls, and lakes in Bighorn National Forest are much better. The trip from Cody through Grey Bull over the Granite Pass was phenomenal.

My wife and I drove through here on our way from midwest to Yellowstone. Wow, what incredible scenery! From the beautiful overlooks to the colorful rock formations, this is a great way to explore NE Wyoming.
