There is abundant evidence of the last major Rocky Mountain glaciation as you drive through the northwestern Bighorn Basin, Absaroka and Beartooth Mountains. Observers of the landscape can see ancient paleorivers associated with melting mountain ice as well as streamlined mountains and ice-polished granite. Gain a new appreciation for NW Wyoming’s scenic landscape in this presentation.

Support for the Draper’s Lunchtime Expedition series has been made possible by Sage Creek Ranch and the Nancy-Carroll Draper Charitable Foundation.
