If you have never been to Yellowstone, it is a must see. In Cody,Wy is the Buffalo Bill Museum, it is awesome! Several other sights in Cody also. On the way go thru the Bighorn Mountains, it is a very pretty drive.

Keep in mind this is coming from an offroad junkie but in order to see the San Juans you need to leave the pavement. There are a number of jeep rentals in Ouray and if you have the time rent one and head up into Yankee boy Basin and at least to the top of Imogene. I would recommend going over into Telluride and back. Makes for an awesome day trip. They offer guided tours as well so all you would have to do is set back and take pics to post when you get back.

HW, we will be traveling from Gillette Wyoming to Cody, and crossing the Bighorns. We have two route options, North through Sheridan or south through Buffalo. Which do you think is more scenic?
