Nestled in the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains, Ten Sleep was given its name by Native Americans to denote the distance between it and other signiﬁcant Native American camps. Although Ten Sleep and the surrounding Nowood Valley grows in population, the town remains much the same as it was a hundred years ago. Many ranches are still operated by the families who owned them in the late 1880’s. Ten Sleep is also home to the world famous Ten Sleep 4th of July Parade and Rodeo, an old fashioned rodeo that originated in 1946. If you want to see the true American West, Ten Sleep is a must-see western town.
