Ten Sleep’s unusual name reflects the historical travel time, and hence the distance, to ancestral Sioux camps near Fort Laramie, Yellowstone Park, and southern Montana. The area has an intriguing modern history, including a period of extreme lawlessness during which powerful cattle interests took on the smaller-scale sheep ranchers in the famous range wars.
