Big Horn Mountains, South End
The mountains rise up immediately out of the prairie lands in front of them. As you can see, the beds of sedimentary rocks are turned up on their edge almost vertically.
The top of the mountains is largely a flat plateau. Her we are looking off to the north toward Loaf Mountain and the rest of the Big Horns.
The view from the top of Sheep Mountain was spectacular.
We are on the Hyattville Road near Tensleep.
Out of Hyattville, we took the Red Gulch-Alkali Road back up into the mountains.
Looking back down the Red Gulch-Alkali Road toward the Big Horn Basin.
The big Horns are still ahead of us on the Red Gulch-Alkali Road.
