Greybull Highway Could Become “Wild Horse Highway”

Written by on January 18, 2019

The Greybull highway could soon have a new designation.

If legislation passes, the highway between Cody and Greybull could soon become the “Wild Horse Highway.”

Marion Morrison, who is the executive director of FOAL, which stands for “Friends of a Legacy,” says that the proposed designation is intended to draw attention to the wild mustang herd that lives east of Cody.

Morrison says that the mustangs are a significant tourist attraction in the region, and by giving the highway a designation, it strengthens a network of highways that could pique the interest of people planning a visit to northwest Wyoming.

Senator Hank Coe introduced the bill in the Senate, and says that he feels confident the bill will pass the legislature.

The Park County Commissioners pledged their support for the designation of the “Wild Horse Highway” at their meeting on Tuesday.
