Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area
It is said that if the Bighorn River and mountains are ever called by a name other than Bighorn, the Crow people will wither away and disappear. So deep is the feeling of the Crow for this place, this river, and these mountains. Natural forces created this dramatic landscape so revered by the Crow. The Bighorn river starts in the Wind River Mountains and eventuall empties into the Yellowstone River. The most dramatic stretch of this waterway sits astride the Montana-Wyoming state line where it has sliced the fifty-one-mile-long Bighorn Canyon into the landscape.
In Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, you'll learn more about this spectacular landscape and the people who hold it in such high regard. Several full-color photographs help tell the story of this land and how it connects to the American story.
