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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
