We took a ride through Big Horn as we traveled from Sheridan, Wy to Cody. Pretty vistas and plenty of deer among the way. Didn't stay in the campground but enjoyed watching kayakers at Sibley Lake. What a relaxed way to enjoy a national forest!...More

The scenic byway thru the nothing mountains is nothing special scenery wise, in my opinion. The good thing was we did get to enjoy watching a bull moose pretty close for a while. There were 2 females further away.

The mountains and valleys are beautiful. The snow melt is high this time of year. Snow on the mountains gives a good contrast. Views on the sunshiny day were wonderful.

There are no words to describe the beauty of this place. Exceptional beauty. Vistas stretch on as far as the eye can see. Already looking forward to a return trip. When you go, be sure to take your camera and prepare to be astounded!
