Drove from Buffalo, WY to Meadowlark Lodge and had lunch. Food was excellent. We then drove through Crazy Women Canyon which I highly recommend. It's absolutely a beautiful canyon! We saw a Moose and several deer.

Be prepared to use second and even first gear on the downhill stretches. Quaint small towns and ranches clinging to mountainsides. Open range. Watch for wildlife and cattle. Gas up before you start out.

This highway is beautiful, the mountain pass has amazing forests and views that are incredible! The canyon is also breathtaking and displays the rock layers artistically! If you are in the area it is a must see! One of God's great masterpieces!

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.
