Ten Sleep Canyon

I’ve mentioned the Big Horn Mountains of north central Wyoming; they are some of my favorite mountains. There are three routes across the Big Horns and each of them is spectacular: Hwy 14 goes from Sheridan to Greybull via Shell Canyon. Hwy 14A splits off from Hwy 14 at Burgess Junction atop the mountains and goes to Lovell instead of Greybull. Hwy 16 goes from Buffalo to Worland via Ten Sleep Canyon and passes through the quaint and picturesque ranching village of Ten Sleep. I took this photo in Ten Sleep Canyon in October 2011.
