Wandering WY: Aspen Alley

Updated: Nov 9, 2020

It's finally officially Spring! However, snow is still in the forecast here in Wyoming so I'm going to write about Fall just make sure we're as confused as the weather is. I meant to have this post up yesterday, but hey life has a funny way of editing your plans just when you thought you had it all under control. That's why I love these spontaneous weekend trips to new places in my state!



Armed with a map and a vague idea of what to expect from pictures on Instagram, my Mother and I set out on this day trip to Aspen Alley last fall.


Located in the northwestern tip of the Bow-Routt National Forests, Aspen Alley is a photo destination for locals and travel photographers from all over the world. This is where Wyoming gets to show its particular brand of Autumn smack dab in the middle of nowhere. You won't find it by accident, but you will be excited you took the backroads for this view!


Entering the Aspen Alley quite literally takes your breath away! For me, it immediately reminded me of my childhood love for Winnie the Pooh and the Hundred Acre Wood.
