Natural Corrals is a basin in Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, Crow Reservation, MT.
During an earlier stage of entrenchment, the Bighorn River’s course was through the Natural Corrals (fig. 10). However, erosion on the two cutbanks of the meandering river cut through a wall separating them, allowing the river to take a new shorter route and in the process abandoning the previous meander. Continued downcutting left the Natural Corrals high and dry (Lopez 2007). This outstanding example of an abandoned meander is across from Devil Canyon Overlook.
