Montana, south east, View through natural arch of Devil Canyon and the Bighorn River, Bighorn River National Recreation area. Bighorn River Canyon is a rugged landscape with cliffs up to 2,500 feet above the waters meandering path. The canyon is very narrow and steep so the Bighorn still has a river like appearance even though it's been a lake in this area since the construction of the Yellowtail Dam in 1966. With clear deep water and premiere trout fishing, many consider the lake an improvement over the muddy river it once was. Regardless, this 68,000 acre National Recreation area is impressive with its Grand Canyon like appearance, Wildlife, wild horses and fossil record dating back to the Jurassic.
