The Beautiful Bighorn Canyon Straddles Wyoming And Montana And Is Perfect For A Day In The Backcountry

When most people discuss Wyoming’s natural wonders, the topic turns to Yellowstone, Flaming Gorge, the Tetons, and the Wind River Range. Very rarely, someone will bring up Bighorn Canyon Recreation Area. Perhaps because it straddles the Wyoming-Montana border it is often overlooked, but if you’ve never spent time exploring the canyon and the Pryor mountains, you’re in for a real treat.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
