THE GREAT OUTDOORSDay 1 – Spend the day in Tongue River Canyon – Hike and fish. Or better yet, mountain bike or rock climb here with rated climbs.

Day 4 – Hike or climb Steamboat Rock – take a picnic lunch or eat on the mountain at one of the three eating establishments. Day 5 – Experience Medicine Wheel – Created high atop a mountain, Medicine Wheel was created by a civilization still unknown to us. Enjoy the one mile hike to the site or if necessary Forest Service personnel will drive individuals to the site. This site is sacred to the indigenous people of the region. Day 6 – Shell Falls is the thundering heartbeat of the magnificent Bighorn Mountains. There is a quality of the sublime in all waterfalls, but especially in Shell Falls.
