NEW BOOK ALERT!
Look to the Mountains: Revisiting Historic Photographs of the Bighorn National Forest by Dave Stoetzel, John Spencer, and the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum is now in print! This book came to fruition thanks to the overwhelmingly popular temporary exhibit, Untrammeled: 50 Years of the Wilderness Act Through the Viewfinder which was on display in 2014/2015. This book features then and now comparison photographs taken approximately 90 years apart.
Available for purchase via the Museum Store or by contacting the museum at 307-684-9331
