This drive is very worth it. It goes quickly between Cheyenne and Laramie. It is very pretty with rolling hills, pastures, trees, rock formations and Pronghorns. It does get weather if there is a storm rolling through.

I made this trip to Laramie, WY on my Harley, and this route is a must (it takes you to the Lincoln Highway Monument at Sherman Hill on Route 30 / I-80).

We loved taking this drive out of town. It's scenic and surprising and beautiful. Rolling prairies, homes and fences, hills and valleys, wind farms and lots of sky.

Nice dive with very little traffic. If your going Cheyenne to Laramie it is a must do. It will only take a few minutes longer than the interstate.

Go East on I80 to the rest area that has the Lincoln monument. Exit there. When you come to a y in the road to go right to the rest area, go left. This is Happy jack road. It will also say Curt Gowdy Reservoir.
