Stayed in Greybull for the night and took a trip out, only about an hours drive, but breathtaking scenery, with mountains and gorges, very interesting information at the falls

So beautiful- an amazing amount of water flows over & around the rock formations. The signage is excellent and trails easy walking. Photo ops everywhere. Watch for the hummingbirds and little critters like chipmunks & squirrels too. Safe to take kids with the side rails.

We haven't had snow since last month. I think the storm you're referring to was south; Laramie/Cheyenne area.
