A Day Trip To Bighorn National Forest! An Incredible Wyoming Surprise!

Hello Everyone!!
Wyoming has been tempting us with this jewel of nature for days! Worth the wait as Bighorn National Forest and the scenic highways 14 & 14A are well worth the trip!

Bighorn National Forest, Wyoming photoBighorn National Forest is an incredibly diverse landscape! Rocky, grassy, high and low elevations…there is something new to see around every twist and turn of the highway!

The girls are happy to be stretching their legs. I love the mix of colors this landscape provides.

Bighorn National Forest photoMost of the forest is above 5000 ft elevation with peaks as high as 13,000 that are only accessible by horse or hike!
