Yesterday we shared a reader’s photo
the giant “crack” in the earth in the Bighorns. Since then, we’ve learned a
bit more about what may have caused the giant “crack” about ten miles south
of Ten Sleep.

a photo on their facebook page with the following information that we are
working to confirm:
“An engineer from Riverton, WY came out to shed a little light on this
giant crack in the earth. Apparently, a wet spring lubricated across a cap
rock. Then, a small spring on either side caused the bottom to slide out.
[The engineer] estimated 15 to 20 million yards of movement. By range
finder, an estimate is 750 yards long and about 50 yards wide.”
Again, we are working to confirm this theory.
