A landscape of sheer cliffs towering 1,000 feet above a ribbon of blue water is what will impress you first. But the millennium of history here will stay with you as you learn about paths blazed by Paleo-Indians, the story of the Crow people’s fight for land and justice, the era of mountain men and the pioneers that followed as they transformed passages through the area.
The historical legacies of open range, family and dude ranching and a host of eccentrics who lived out extraordinary lives - all live on here. Fast forward to our own times, where the harnessing of a river’s power helps set light to our world and today, and wild herds of horses and big horn sheep still roam.
