Drive along Wyoming’s Red Gulch/Alkali Scenic Backway when it's open and dry, between May and October, and you’ll encounter stunning showcases of area history as well as the colorful geography of the Big Horn Mountains.

A 34-mile route through a mostly untraveled (and unpaved) section of the Big Horn Basin, there are no towns, stores, gas stations or telephones along the way. Take drinking water, food, and a spare tire—the ride can get bumpy.
