The Pryor Mountains are a special place. There are many acres of fossil deposits from an ancient inland sea, arid valleys, lush valleys, and forgotten homesteads. There is also ice caves and caves inhabited by little people.

This is a great place to visit for hiking or riding. Not terribly accessible. Very spiritual area for many reasons. The canyon is also something to see.
