“Lovely scenic highway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you really want to see this area take some turns on some of the sideroads. It has snowed the night before we took Hwy 16. We turned off on Sourdough Rd and what a delight. The snow had not been disturbed yet except the road to get in. It was spectacular. We did see one little deer that had snow on the tip of her nose and she actually stood still almost in a pose so I could take her picture with the snow covered willows in the background.

“GREAT way to Yellowstone, much better than HWY 14!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Loved to stop at South Fork Lodge on the way just west of Buffalo. Great restaurant, place for horseback riding and a place to rest your head. The Buffalo way through the Big Horns is definitely my favorite!

“Scenic route over the Bighorns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

The foothills near Ten Sleep are beautifully colored and the rock formations in Ten Sleep Canyon are also lovely. The road has numerous places to overtake slower vehicles going uphill and to pull over and take photos, and there is a lovely alpine lake midway. Be cautious in driving -- use lower gears going downhill to spare brakes. Do NOT flick cigarettes out your window -- forest fires and grass fires start easily

We chose this route for its scenery and were not disappointed. Beautiful every where we looked, would have liked to see more wildlife.

“Good ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Loved the drive from Buffalo through the Big Horns. Scenic and relatively quick. Upon exiting Big Horns, the drive became less scenic but you could drive really, really fast in the barren stretches of Wyoming. Slow down about 20 miles East of Cody if you go to Yellowstone.
