Highlight: Green Ridge Road
Green Ridge Road is one of several major side roads off of Deep Creek Road in the Sierra Madre Range of the Medicine Bow National Forest in southern Wyoming. It is a beautiful drive as it winds its way along the broad high ground of the Green Ridge through an aspen, pine, and fir forest with some large open meadows. There are also several large, clear cut areas along the road leftover from major logging operations several years ago and you will see large piles of debris wood stacked up and waiting for safe conditions to be burned. The remnants of the logging also mean that the many closed spurs offer a lot of camping opportunities. The plentiful aspen makes this a good choice for fall foliage viewing. The road gets no winter maintenance and is snowed in but is very popular for snowmobiles. This is a nice, relaxing drive through some very pretty country and makes a great addition to a weekend or week-long adventure in the Sierra Madres.
