What is the Black to Yellow Region?

It’s mystical and spiritual lands along the plains of northeastern Wyoming, where stories of the American West whisper through the pines. It’s got the nation’s first national monument, Devils Tower, where you’ll wonder at the mystery of its existence in this sacred place. It’s a land that time forgot in Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, where you can snag a trout or simply float by 1,000-foot colorful canyon walls on Bighorn Lake. It’s meandering trails through the Bighorn National Forest, where you might cross paths with moose, deer or other native wildlife before ending up at the Big Horn Medicine Wheel. It’s the colorful and unique landscapes of bizarre rock formations, ridges and hollows of the Painted Desert locals call The Badlands. And it’s where you’ll step into the past at each town filled with history and lore, meeting larger-than-life characters like Buffalo Bill Cody and experiencing western culture. It’s your path to find out what life was really like in Wyoming throughout the years as you make your way to Yellowstone National Park.
