Great way to see some of the country side vs the interstate. The road goes through or by several parks that are worth checking out including Medicine Bow. Well worth the time it adds running from Laramie to Cheyenne.

This drive is very pretty and fun to see the wind turbines. You get very close to the wind turbines and if you have never been so close to a wind turbine its a great experience.

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.

Fun drive through the country. See the windmills up close, enjoy food or drink at the Bunkhouse, and explore the rock formations.

After seeing some reviews, I decided to take this road from Cheyenne to Laramie, and it was a great scenic drive. It starts out pretty slow near Cheyenne, but after a few miles, the road begins to climb and the scenery changes from flat plains...More

If you're in Cheyenne, and especially if you're not a local, you must take and hour or two to drive up Happy Jack Road. Beautiful lake and hiking. Even more fun if you visit the local cowboy bar (you can't miss it... it's the only...More

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.
