Snowy Range Scenic Byway

The weekend has gone by so fast. I love Sunday’s, but it is also sad to know that Monday is soon approaching us.  Today is the perfect day for a drive. One of the most gorgeous scenic byways you will ever take is the Snowy Range Scenic Byway. Be sure to grab your camera for this trip.

The Snowy Range Scenic Byway drives through the heart of the Medicine Bow National Forest and is peppered with crystal blue lakes and jagged gray granite peaks. The view is breathtaking.

To get to the scenic byway, take HWY 130 to Centennial. After you hit Centennial, you will be at the base of the mountains. It is about a 30 mile drive. This is a great place forfishing, photography, hiking, mountain biking, and much more outdoor activities. You will also still see snow! Each year I love going up there as it always amazes me how beautiful it is.

On your way back, I love stopping at the Beartree Tavern & Cafe in Centennial for their amazing pizza. The Beartree Tavern & Cafe also has live music during the summer in their outside patio.
