The Bighorns are absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the area 3 days to explore the Bighorns. We took all 3 of the scenic drives and thought they were all beautiful and equally scenic. Off of Hwy 16- there is a Fire tower (short hike to top) you can go to- panoramic views in every direction. Tensleep Canyon (on 16) and Shell Canyon (off 14) were amazing. We drove up 14A from Lovell- the views were beautiful as we drove up 14A and from the overlook on top. We saw wild life, beautiful wild flowers, scenery, mountain lakes and streams. Take your time with these drives, get out at the overlooks, explore and experience the Bighorns.

This was an unexpected drive through the mountains on our way to Yellowstone. I admit, I teared up a couple of times because it was so spectacular! The beauty of the Bighorn mountains blew me away! I didn't even know they were there!

Nice route to take heading to Cody WY. Nice scenic roadway. I would put on any list of sights to see on a Wyoming trip.

You will see sites of nature that you will never see on Rt 90. It is worth the trip and time to go through the mountains.
