The Red Desert, in south/central Wyoming, is touted as being one of the largest unfenced areas in the lower 48. Visiting the Red Desert is like stepping back in time. Huge views unspoiled by building and structures, wild horses, and very few other visitors. This is a unique area that seems to be overlooked by most, but is very worth visiting.


Special notes apply when traveling the back roads of Wyoming:

+ Many small towns are far apart with few services. Always take plenty of food, water, and fuel.

+ Road conditions can vary dramatically, especially with seasons. Be prudent if conditions are muddy or snowy.

+ In spring, summer, and fall, wood ticks are often a problem. Be sure to check for them.

+ Be sure to have good maps skills, Wyoming is a big place.
