route 25 in Wyoming from rt 90 to rt 80 hilly?

Is route 25 hilly? I see the bigfoot mountains near it. Or should I go over to 29 and cut down the Missouri river in Iowa? I am trying to go a different route back than I came to yellowstone area on. I went by 80 up to 90 at chicago.

Chicago is such a pain so I figured if I cut down earlier it might be better plus I could see more of the country.

The easiest route I have found is:

Rt. 14 (east entrance of Y'stone) to Cody
Rt. 120 to Thermopolis
Rt. 20 to Shonshoni (make a left in Shonshoni to stay on 20)
That will lead you in to Casper where you can pick up I-25 and take it down to I-80.

That route slides you between the Wind River range and the Bighorn range.

I agree with RVThere's recommendation.

Don't know how far east you're headin', but if you want to avoid Chicago, you could continue south on I-25 for 100 miles and pick-up I-70 at Denver. It doesn't get busy until St. Louis which is nearly 900 miles east.

Agree with stumble on going 70. If you're going that far south.

80 thru nebraska is a horror. Flat and lifeless as far as the eye can see. Did. It once, never again (unless I'm going to colorado)

90 thru southernminnesota is not too bad.

Construction on I 80 past chicago just plain sucks. Bumper to bumper from joliet to the state line. And no way aroun it either.

Only a fool would go anywhere near 294, or any closer to ther city than that. I355 is not tooo bad, as long as it isn't rush hour. Anytime that is daylight and not between 11am and 2pm, is rush hour.

You might want to check locally about road construction. I took rt 14 from Cody to Yellowstone in late May and it was a 1 lane muddy bog. Hopefully by now it is a brand new beauty of a highway.

Jim's suggestions just triggered another thought in my mind.

Another option to avoid Chicago and the horror that is I-80, you could take I-90 to Rockford and then head south on I-39 to Bloomington, IL where you would pick up I-74 and head to Indianapolis. That routing would save you at least 2 hours over my original I-70 recommendation from Denver to Indy.

Thanks all.

I wanted to swing through Cheyenne which I made yesterday. Ne is boring lol but so was much of South Dakota so six of one half a dozen of the other. I also want to check out the big boy locomotive at Omaha Ne I have hit construction on 80 and 90 in just about every state. They keep the cone manufacturers in business.

It was so windy and cold and rainy I skipped that one. I should have stayed over another day there but I had to get the generator fixed asap which meant going on to Nebraska for the cummins service place before the weekend . nothing ever goes as planned
