This Overlooked Wyoming Scenic Byway Is Breathtakingly Beautiful

It’s always a treat to find an overlooked gem that others don’t know about or simply bypass on their way to more popular destinations. While Wyoming has more than its fair share of popular attractions, it’s also a treasure-trove of ones that have been missed or forgotten. The Battle Pass Scenic Byway is a perfect example. It’s a comparatively short snip of road through a section of the Medicine Bow National Forest, but the spectacular scenery makes this overlooked byway worth the trip, even if it’s out of your way.
