“Wild Horse Highway” Designated
Written by wendycorr on July 3, 2019
The Wild Horse Highway is a reality.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation erected signs east of Cody Monday designating a 32 mile stretch of highway 14/16/20 as the state’s official “Wild Horse Highway.”
The Wyoming State Legislature this year legally designated the stretch of the highway between Oregon Basin and the Emblem Road as prime viewing for the McCullough Peaks wild horse herd. Marion Morrison, executive director for Friends of a Legacy, or FOAL, says the organization worked closely with their legislative representatives to signify the area as a way to call attention to the natural resources that often go overlooked.
A celebration of the mustangs and the Wild Horse Highway is planned for 10 a.m. August 24th, at the group’s interpretive kiosk about 27 miles east of Cody.
