Birdseye Pass and Copper Mountain Roads

Almost exactly five miles south of the Boysen Dam turn-off is Birdseye Pass Road. Here is the map.

This photograph looks northwest with US-20 in the background.

To the north, toward Thermopolis, the day was cloudy and overcast, but because of the Owl Creek Mountains which blocked the clouds, the Shoshone Basin was sunny--just for our enjoyment of taking pictures!
