Bighorn National Forest is located in north-central Wyoming and is comprised of 189,000 terrain varying acres. This forest holds a variety of sights including lush grasslands, alpine meadows, crystal-clear lakes, rolling hills, sheer mountain walls, and glacial carved valleys. The Big Horn Mountains lie smack in the middle of the preserve and are considered a "sister range" to the Rocky Mountains.
My time spent at Bighorn was in the van, I was just driving through on my way to Devil's Monument. On my way through I did however notice many of the landscape offerings described above, from grasslands to rolling hills to sheer mountain walls. It was a rather beautiful place.
I'm entering the western extent of Bighorn now. As I drive along I can see someone trying to hitch a ride and as I slow down the van I can see that it is..... you! So please hop in and let's enjoy the scenic views of Bighorn together.
