The “Wild Horse Highway”

January 1, 1970

A Cody area route will soon become the “Wild Horse Highway” after the proposal drew more ayes than “neighs” in the Wyoming Legislature.

In passing Senate File 112 last week, state lawmakers agreed to name a roughly 30-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 14/16/20 — from Cody city limits to just east of Emblem — after the McCullough Peaks wild horse herd that roams along the road.
