“This is what we expected the west to look like”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

By the time we got to the range, it was mid afternoon on a hot day, which means the conditions were less than ideal for spotting mustangs. Fortunately, we managed to see four in spite of the weather. Even if we hadn't seen any, the drive was more than worthwhile - it's stunningly beautiful. We drove all the way to the end of the road and back, and took the road to look at the canyon at Porcupine Creek (I believe). Although it's much smaller, I thought it was more beautiful than the Grand Canyon. Throughout the drive, we kept saying "This is what I expected the west to look like." On a lovely summer day, the scenery and views can't be beat.

“Guided Photography Trips to see the horses”
Reviewed 3 September 2010

I went to see the horses on the wildflower season, and it was AMAZING, the road up is brutal, and you should think twice about taking your own vehicle. I went with a pro photographer from Billings, Michael Francis, he offers guided trips, and looks after everything, check out his website..Michael Francis Nature Photo. You can see some of my images at www.livingskiesphotography.com, in a gallery called Wild Horses.

If your are interested in the Mustang here is a place to see them first hand. It's a tough trip to get to them but it is one well worth taking. See these magnificant animals in their natural surroundings and enjoy some of the most spectacular secenry in the wqorld.
