Golden cottonwood trees line the banks of the Yellowstone River below Sacrifice Cliff in Billings, Montana.
Sacrifice Cliff is one of Billings’ most recognizable landmarks, and it remains a site of extraordinary historical legend. A Crow Indian tale tells of two young men who returned from a hunting trip to find their village stricken by smallpox. Whether it was out of grief, or to appease the Great Spirit, the two young men committed suicide by riding over the cliff on a blindfolded white horse.
