The snow-covered, southern Bighorn Mountains and Bighorn Basin are visible in this southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. The southern Bighorns are not as high, as rugged, or as forest-covered as the Bighorn Mountains farther north (bottom right). Visible are the southeastern section of the Bighorn Basin and irrigated agricultural fields of the Bighorn River Valley. The middle fork of the Powder River (bottom left) is visible as it winds eastward into the Powder River Basin. A small portion of the Wind River Basin is visible to the west (upper right).
