The favorite sanctuaries for Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch were Hole-in-the-Wall, in northern Wyoming, Browns Park, in northeastern Utah, near the Wyoming and Colorado borders and Robbers Roost, in southeastern Utah. The wild country served the outlaws well.

Hole-in-the-Wall was not really a hole, but a narrow path along a cliff. The gang could guard the entrance, spot riders approaching from a great distance and easily defend the narrow passes. The men holed up there at Cassidy’s ranch along Blue Creek. The land is now private property, so you should get permission if you would like to visit the beautiful, remote location.
