the world's most spectacular roads

 

Libby Flats Observation Area is a high mountain observation tower at an elevation of 3.313m (10,869ft) above the sea level, located in the Rocky Mountains of the Albany County, in Wyoming, USA. It's one of the highest roads of Wyoming.

The road to the pass, in the Medicine Bow National Forest, is a two-lane paved road suitable for all vehicles. It’s called Wyoming Highway 130 (also known as Snowy Range Road). The road is pretty steep and closes for the season in mid-November, and traditionally reopens with the help of snowplows before Memorial Day weekend.

 

The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don't forget your camera with lots of film/memory, fully charged batteries and an empty memory card! It provides views south to Rocky Mountain National Park, west toward Medicine Bow Peak, the Sierra Madre Mountains, and Mt. Zirkel Wilderness Area, and east toward the Laramie Mountains
