Inscription.  According to tradition, a band of Crow Indians left the main tribe and moved west into the foothills of the Beartooth Range many years ago. They painted their council tepee with red-clay and this old-time artistry resulted in the name Red Lodge.

This region is a bonanza for scientists. It is highly fossilized and Nature has opened a book on Beartooth Butte covering about a quarter of a billion years of geological history. It makes pretty snappy reading for parties interested in some of the ologies—palaeontology for example.

Some students opine that prehistoric men exited her several million years earlier than heretofore believed. Personally we don’t know, but if there were prowling around that long ago, of course they would pick Montana as the best place to live.
