A 5 stars road to Libby Flats Observation Area in the Rocky Mountains
Libby Flats Observation Area is an observation tower at an elevation of 3.313m (10,869ft) above the sea level, located in Albany County, in Wyoming, USA. It's one of the highest roads of Wyoming.
Tucked away in the Rocky Mountains of southern Wyoming, the road to the tower, is a two-lane paved road suitable for all vehicles. It’s called Wyoming Highway 130 (also known as Snowy Range Road). The tower marks the highest point on the road along the scenic byway, and it’s a short walk away from the parking area.
Located within Wyoming's Medicine Bow National Forest, expect fierce winds. 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 tower 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.
