Public Lands & Wild Horses
The Adobe Town Horse Management Area (HMA) is located in south-central Wyoming between Interstate 80 and the Colorado/Wyoming border. It encompasses 472,812 acres of which 444,744 are BLM-administered public lands. The topography of the area is varied with everything from colorful eroded desert badlands to wooded buttes and escarpments. In between are extensive rolling to rough uplands interspersed with some desert playa and vegetated dune areas. Elevation ranges from 6600 ft to 7800 ft along Kinney Rim, which forms the western boundary of the HMA. Some of the HMA is in the Adobe Town Wilderness Study Area. Other features in the area include the Cherokee Trail, the Haystacks, and Powder Rim.

Battle Highway Scenic Byway & The Edison Monument
The Battle Highway along Wyoming’s Highway 70 stretches across the Sierra Madre Mountains from Encampment to Baggs. The scenic highway is open Memorial Day through October. Historic sites along the way include Battle ghost town and the Edison Monument commemorating the place where, while fishing on Battle Lake, Thomas Edison got the idea for the first light-bulb filament. Battle Pass, on the Continental Divide, provides a sweeping view of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. Traffic on the highway is light and wide shoulders make this an excellent bicycle route as well.
Names as notable as Butch Cassidy and his infamous Wild Bunch, “holed-up” around the town of Baggs during the hay-days of the Old West. The Gaddis Matthews House, which still stands in the center of town, was known as a hang-out for Butch and his gang. Long after his reported death in Bolivia in 1909, local residents insisted that Butch made several visits to Baggs during hunting trips with friends in 1929 and 1930. Of course this is still hotly debated.
