|Sunday 8/24/2003 in Montana, spent on Big Horn Canyon National Recreation
Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area was established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, following the construction of the Yellowtail Dam by the Bureau of Reclamation. Bighorn Lake extends approximately 60 miles through Wyoming and Montana. It is composed of 70,000+ acres and reaches depths over 400 feet. It boasts breath-taking scenery, countless varieties of wildlife, and abundant recreational opportunities.
The scenery of the sheer canyon walls was spectacular.
A bit of fishing and a bit of relaxing.
Down an arm of the lake to see Black Canyon. We were glad to see one of the lake's floating remote bathrooms!
Catch of the Day! Greg did better than Kurt. The lake boasts trout, walleye and more.
Coming back into the marina at Ok-A-Beh, which is just outside of Fort Smith, Montana.
A great view of the Yellowtail Dam.
The end of great day enjoying Montana's great outdoors.
