Scenic Byways, Back Country Roads & Hidden Treasures

Drive through the mountains and prairies of Carbon County, Wyoming to observe our bountiful wildlife and breath taking scenery. Wyoming is home to some of the best kept secrets in the natural world. Whether you’re exploring the great Continental Divide, high mountain deserts or vast prairie lands, Wyoming’s scenery will not disappoint. Keep your eyes open and you may  catch a glimpse of Wyoming’s native wildlife species including foxes, coyotes, deer, antelope, moose, elk, bald eagles, badger and more. Please be aware that in the winter many of our scenic roads close due to high snowfall.

It is estimated that the rugged peaks of the Snowy Range rose 50 to 70 million years ago. It is also said that the mountain peaks may have once been much higher. Geologists suggest that approximately 15,000 feet of rock has eroded away since the mountain range's creation.
