Loved seeing all the beautiful horses. I love coming across things to do that are unplanned. Absolutely wonderful place to spend the day.

We've now seen the south, Wyoming, end of Bighorn Canyon twice and are still amazed at the beauty of it. Last weekend we decided to see the Montana end, and so visited Yellowtail Dam and the surrounding dams, lakes, rivers. It really is a beauty,...More
