HIKING THE DEEP RAVINE TRAIL Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, Crow Agency, Montana

Hiking Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: June 20, 2022

Just below Last Stand Hill where the last of Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custers 7th Cavalry died in the 1876 massacre, I stood with the strong breeze blowing in my face and the buffalo grass swaying. The trail leads down the valley towards the deep ravine and then the Little Bighorn River. White grave markers littered both sides of the trail to indicate where a fallen cavalry body was found dead. Red granite markers indicated where Indian Warriors had died. Signs warned us to not go off the trail because this is rattlesnake country. The almost one-mile hike was very peaceful and historic.
