Backpacker Magazine – May 2000
Montana: The Pryor Mountains harbor the nation's last free-roaming wild mustangs, not to mention wilderness that is as wild as the horses.
Getting There: From Lovell, Wyoming, drive north on WY 37 roughly 15 miles, then turn east on Crooked Creek Road. Follow it past the wild horse facility, and park where the road turns to a two-rut trail.
Prime Time: May, June.
Guides: BLM map #36 (406-896-5000; $4).
