“Scenic Drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is a great scenic drive through the Big Horn Mountains. We were in a bit of a hurry, so only got to see the roadside sights. Looks like a lot of outdoor recreation opportunities available in a beautiful location, so would like to come back and explore some day.

“Beautiful scenic highway that is worth the extra time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

I am so glad that I read the reviews on tripadvisor recommending this drive! It is just as gorgeous as all the previous reviews stated. Our kids enjoyed all the wildlife (we spotted a red fox, several deer, and antelope), the adults enjoyed the majestic scenery and saw several places for future primitive camping trips. This was another tripadvisor "find".

“Take the drive to Tensleep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

You will not regret it especially if you have been on the interstates for a while. Nonstop "wow' moments. I startled a marmot on the pass when we got out to enjoy the view.

“The trip from Buffalo to Cody, Wy in complete comfort and happiness.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

The highway is known as the Sweet 16 and I guess it really was. The views were so awesome all the way to Cody, Wy and we will always have great memories of times shared along the way, like snowball fights in June, in shorts, on the top of a gorgeous mountain.

“From 50 degrees to whiteout in no time at all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

We drove US Highway 16 from Worland to Buffalo. The temperature started at 50 degrees and dropped to 32 as we experienced whiteout conditions along the way, returning to 50 degrees as we approached Buffalo. The topography was outstanding and we even had to slow to a stop when we saw a Moose on the road ahead of us. The constantly changing views before us made the drive worthwhile despite the unexpected snow.
