I agree. I have visited the site alone and with Cheyenne tribal members. There is a sadness there. Some of my friends said the heard the horse whining..as they were slaughtered on the embankment. An eerie place...a unwelcome feeling for sure.


I ran across this and had to comment. I was passing through the area and stopped. It was just at daybreak and a groundskeeper let me in. I grew up in the country but I have never been more uncomfortable in my life. I was at the first bench when I heard these horses. I was thinking, why are they letting horses run around a massacre site? As I'm going on I thought something was wrong with them so I went off the path in the direction I heard them. I made it about 30 feet off the trail when panic hit. It was almost an uncontrollable urge to run. I didn't but didn't make it to the campsite either. When I got back to my car, I felt like an idiot. But I don't ever want to go back there again. They should close that site. Unwelcome indeed. It's not a good place.
