Postcard From Yellowtail Dam, Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area

Yellowtail Dam area in Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, Montana

I’m not sure how it compares to Glen Canyon size-wise, but it was among the tallest I’ve seen. There is a truck parked in front of the red building that will give some scale. You have to go there on purpose – the dam itself is about 50 miles off of I-90 and the lake extends into northern Wyoming. You can’t (easily) get to the southern end from the northern except via boat.
