Don’t Miss the Stunning Fall Colors in Sheridan, Wyoming

Explore the stunning Bighorn Mountains under a canopy of electric color each fall when you drive the Bighorn Scenic Byway to Burgess Junction, where aspen groves set a spectacular stage for the breathtaking Cloud Peak Wilderness. In the foothills, the Welch Ranch Recreation Area includes 1,700 acres of woodland along the Tongue River, where towering cottonwoods shimmer late into the fall. At the Brinton Museum, marvel at the beautiful canopy that lines the path to the historic ranch house.

Plan your visit to coincide with the annual events at the Koltiska’s Pumpkin Patch, a great opportunity for the entire family to visit a historic ranch in beautiful Sheridan County. The 2023 WYO Winter Rodeo and epic skijoring festivities are planned for February 18-19; don’t miss your chance to experience Sheridan’s incredible winter wonderland and the wildest ride in the West.
