two_moon Al wondered how this park got it’s name. I wasn’t sure so I looked it up and thought I would share a little more information about this park with you.

two moon1 Two Moon was a Northern Cheyenne Chief who had fought as a young man at the Battle of the Rosebud fight against Crook, the Little Big Horn fight against Custer, camped on the Powder River when Reynolds attacked a village and lastly was at the Battle of Wolf Mountain.

(I’m not sure who owns this picture of the chief so I can’t give them credit for it.)

Sorry Al – no naked Running Bear showing Two Moons.

Two Moon Park has five short main trails with a total length of 3.13 miles.

Weeping Trail – 1.02 miles; Rocke Jeune Trail - .78 miles; Dull Knife Trail - .71 miles; Mallard Trail - .40 miles; and Fox Trot Trail - .22 miles.
