The Bighorn Mountains (Crow: Basawaxaawúua, lit. 'our mountains' or Iisaxpúatahchee Isawaxaawúua, 'bighorn sheep's mountains') are a mountain range in northern Wyoming and southern Montana in the United States, forming a northwest-trending spur from the Rocky Mountains extending approximately 200 miles (320 km) northward on the Great Plains. They are separated from the Absaroka Range, which lie on the main branch of the Rockies to the west, by the Bighorn Basin. Much of the land is contained within the Bighorn National Forest.

  • A lovely scenic drive from Cody in Wyoming to The Battle of Little Bighorn in Montana or as the native Americans call it, The Battle of Greasy Grass. The only problem we encountered was the fog.  more »
  • We had to drive over this mountain range on our way to Thermopolis and the views were outstanding, it feels as if you are driving upwards forever but the roads are good and the views worth it.  more »
