From Casper take US Hwy 20 west. At Shoshoni take US Hwy 26 south to Riverton. At Riverton head west on Hwy 26/Route 287 all the way to Moran Junction. At Moran Junction take US Hwy 191 south to Jackson, Wyoming.
From Casper to Riverton the road is pretty straight but great wide open spaces. As you approach Moran Junction you'll enter the Shoshoni National Forest. From Riverton to Jackson you go through the Wind River Range, Bridger-Teton Nat'l Forest, Teton Wilderness Area, and Grand Teton National Forest - wow!!! From Dubois you start to see the Grand Teton's on your right. This is some of the best, if not the best, mountain scenery in all of the US --- Very Scenic! .
Some hills and turns but nothing very sharp. The pavement was very good with some new paving going on (2002).
Lots of camping and parks. Places to eat in all of the small towns. And of course, Grand Teton national park has tons of camping and other outdoor recreation to offer. Jackson Hole is also a major tourist draw and will have plenty of restaurants and shops to keep you and anyone you're traveling with happy - world class amenities.
