Thunder Basin National Grassland

Thunder Basin National Grassland. (Wikipedia/Wusel 007)

Thunder Basin National Grassland is a mixture of private ranches, and property belonging to the National Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the State of Wyoming. It’s a very big mixture. This massive plot of land was set aside by the Federal Government back in the days of the New Deal, and covers nearly 2 million acres.

The Thunder Basin National Grassland is a vast expanse of rolling plateaus, steep rocky escarpments, and gentle plains. It’s located in the Powder River Basin, between the Big Horn Mountains and the Black Hills, in northeastern Wyoming. There are locations in the Thunder Basin National Grassland, rare spots in Wyoming, where one can stand and not see a mountain range.

Thunder Basin Naional Grassland is its own ecosystem. There’s a vast array of species of wildlife. It’s home to sandhill cranes and muledeer. There are elk, antelope, coyotes, and turkeys. And you’ll find as many as 200 nests of the mighty Golden Eagle here at the Thunder Basin National Grassland, where the vistas and spectacular views seem to go on forever.
