Medicine Bow National Forest is an incredible scenic area. This forest sits in southern Wyoming near the Colorado border. We first traveled through Medicine Bow on our way south from Gillette as we were migrating back to Arizona for winter.
This trip was quite memorable for a couple of reasons. The first is the incredible scenery. The second, however, is that we left Douglas on a 70-degree, sunny afternoon, but soon encountered rain, lightning, hail, snow – and single-lane dirt roads that had turned to nearly-impassable mud. And we were driving a cargo van fitted with all-season tires while hauling a trailer!
