Fodor's Review

Atop the Rimrocks, north of downtown, lie the graves of H.M. Muggins Taylor, the army scout who carried word of Custer's defeat through 180 mi of hostile territory; Western explorer Yellowstone Kelly; and several outlaws executed in territorial days. A sign tells the story of Crow warriors who blindfolded their horses before riding them off what's now known as Sacrifice Cliff in hopes that the gods would end a smallpox epidemic.
