 A new Cell Phone Tour has been developed by the Bighorn Canyon staff for the Mason Lovell Ranch east of Lovell, Wyoming. Visitors can pick-up at map at the Cal S. Taggart Bighorn Canyon Visitor Center or out at the ranch. This cell phone tour is free but cell phone plan minutes do apply. There are seven stops along the tour averaging 1 minute 49 seconds in length. During the tour visitors will hear the story of one of the most prominent ranches in the eastern Bighorn Basin, of how the M-L cattle grazed across an area stretching from Thermopolis to the Crow Reservation in Montana and learn why it is a significant part of our nation’s history. Visitors can take this tour at any time.

If you have questions about the July programs, need directions or arrangements made for accessibility, please call Christy Fleming at 307-548-5404 or Chris Wilkinson at 406-666-2351 in advance.
