This was a beautiful drive. It seemed that we were the only people on the planet because there wasn't much traffic at all. The rock formations were breathtaking.

we took our motorcycles out for a great day of riding, so much nature to see, the weather was perfect and plenty of places to stop and take a break and eat.

After leaving the Buffalo Bill Dam don't turn back to Cody, WY. Take the time to take this drive even if you are not heading towards Yellowstone. The drive is incredible, the rock formations, the scenery-take your time even if there are people behind you...More
