Highway US-20
South of Thermopolis, WY


Fishing, Scenic, Hiking, Landmark

Four miles south of Thermopolis, entering the canyon, is possibly the prettiest drive in Wyoming. Prime geologic territory, from the earth’s core to outer crust and offers great recreation. Guided fishingfloat and white water trips are available from area outfitters. Deeper into the Canyon you will experience the full thrill of its majestic views. The canyon varies in age (Geological) from about 300 million near the Wedding of the Waters, to 2.8 billion down by the tunnels. The river in the canyon is on the Wind River Indian Reservation. You will need additional licenses to fish.

An amazing drive

I drove up from visiting a friend in central Wyoming. The scenery up to the canyon was nothing to write home about. The 12 miles in the canyon was spectacular. Just an awe inspiring drive with lots of picture taking opportunities. Worth the trip.
