Sweetwater County Museum

Reviewed By kathyeG7884UE

This means swim is small but nicely arranged. It focuses on Sweetwater County's history. Coal mining, railroading, and daily life. Great way to take a break after picnicking at Expedition Island. Nice little gift shop with a good selection of books on the area and gifts for.kids. It's often one of my stops when shopping for gifts for out of state friends.

If you want to see large fossils - this is a great place to go. You can do an easy walking tour with the map provided and take you own time enjoying each exhibit.

Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Loop

Reviewed By Mareedratt - Kent, United States

Definitely would recommend! This is a beautiful drive, lots of scenic vistas. We did see some horses but the views made the drive worth it. It’s a very rocky start from Rock Springs but it levels out about halfway through. We took our Ford Escape but saw people with sedans and that would be fine. If you have dry weather, four-wheel-drive is not necessary... it’s just a really rough ride.

Flaming Gorge - Uintas National Scenic Byway

Reviewed By 7gRV2020 - Texas, United States

If you are pressed for time, I strongly encourage you to NOT try to drive the complete scenic byway AND drive it on a beautiful day when you can stop long enough to appreciate everything and take some photos before continuing on this journey. Take plenty of water, snacks, a good pair of hiking shoes, a great camera, and a map of the flaming gorge scenic byway before you venture out. We had a great time and as recommended by many, we also drove the Sheep Creek Geological Loop. Unfortunately, we only drove half of that loop before arriving at road closure, so we had to double back. Maybe this was due to the previous week weather, but It was still worth it and I highly recommend taking that loop.

Flaming Gorge

Reviewed By mountainswans - Westcliffe, United States

This place is beyond incredible - the views amazing and be sure to take the Sheep Creek Geological road! Will have to return because with all the smoke from the fires nationwide I am sure it is even more amazing!
