Very scenic. Wanted to go to falls but at the Visitor Center we were told they were closed for repairs. Smoky this year. Wish that info was posted.

When you start this road trip you don't realize it is one wow after another. The road was smooth. We saw a lot of wild life which added to the awesome scenery.

If you have not visited the Big Horn Mountains you need to put it on your bucket list. This drive is well worth it.

Heading home from Grand Teton National Park we drove this highway, it was really beautiful, lots of steep winding grades though, so used low gear on those to save the brakes. There was road construction resurfacing the highway for quite a few miles. We were...More

What a great drive. You can also jump off and hit the dirt and make it even more memorable. Was expecting a great trip but this was way more then expected. Great scenery. Will not forget this.

Either way is beautiful. If you are driving a motor home I think they say that the route from Buffalo is better but in a car either is fine. Sheridan is a bigger town so if you need a Walmart or big grocery store stop you... More

It's the intersection of Highway 16 and County Road 33. I believe there is a sign "Crazy Woman Canyon." Very easy to find. Google "crazy woman canyon road" to see a map.
