Starlight Basin – Starlight Basin from the Chief Joseph Highway in Northwest Wyoming. There are several scenic highways in Wyoming. You know, the ones that are annotated with dots along the route on maps. The Chief Joseph Highway is possibly one of the top two or three such routes in Wyoming and I suspect it has a high rating nationally as well. From a rest stop along the route, you can look over and down into the Starlight Basin. On this particular day, the light and clouds were just about perfect.
