Bighorn Canyon on the river Bighorn, Montana, USA. The name of the river was introduced at the beginning of the 19th century.


It was named after the bighorn sheep which was grazing alongside the banks of the river. The native tribes´ name of the river was Lisaxpúatahcheeaashisee. It may seem somewhat difficult to pronounce but the meaning is about the same - Large Bighorn Sheep River.

The beauty of the Bighorn river and its canyon is also in the fact that there no visible traces of civilization or tourism. Admiring the area during a flight in a small aircraft is probably the best way which offers unforgettable views and does not leave any footprints.
