Castle Gardens Scenic Area
Castle Gardens rises ornately out of the badlands, a stone forest of red spires, giant toadstools and other fascinating and byzantine formations. Sage, cedar and juniper surround the geological wonderland, which includes a unique picnic area in the "bowl" of the Garden. This quiet day use area south of the lovely town of Tensleep once saw a terrible massacre, when some cattlemen shot Joe Emge, two other men, and all their sheep.
From Tensleep, go 2 miles west on US 16, then 6 miles south on Two Mile Hill Road.www.hobogrill.org
