The Wind River Canyon Run is one that I simply stumbled across trying to get from Casper, WY to Cody, WY on my way to the Chief Joseph's Scenic Highway and the Beartooth Highway.

I had never heard of the Wind River Canyon until I drove into it on my way from Shoshoni to Thermopolis.

I must say that this is now one of my favorite roads. Basically, you have a river with a road on one side, a railroad track on the other, and high canyon walls surrounding that on both sides. The views of the river and the canyon walls are spectacular.

Unfortunately, I was being chased by a pretty ugly storm, so I didn't take time to stop at any of the numerous overlooks to take pictures.

I'm going back out west in 2013 with a friend who's never been to the area and Wind River Canyon will be on the short list of places we will visit while there. And, this time I'll be taking lots of pictures.
