Photo and Description By Jean Stimpson
“We had a short break between harvest and second and third cutting hay so my husband and five friends decided to make an overnight pack trip into Little Horn Canyon (Wyoming side) to fish.” Montana rancher Jean Stimpson continued, “It was 75 degrees when they started into the canyon and it was 38 degrees when they came out the next day. It had rained on them all night and snowed on them the next morning.” To the riders, the temperature was of no concern. “Nothing better though, than relaxing in God’s mountainous beauty, that can only be seen by horseback and getting to sit by a campfire telling stories.” The canyon elevation is around 8,000 ft. and they rode in about five miles.
