A gigantic crack has appeared in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains in northern Wyoming. This crack isn’t just a few meters wide, mind you: it has opened up a gap 685 meters (2,250 feet) long and 45 meters (150 feet) wide.

The locals are somewhat unfortunately nicknaming it the “gash”, as reported by the Huffington Post.

While hunting this past weekend in the Bighorns, we came across an awesome example of how our earth is not as stable as you might think. Awesome forces at work here to move this much dirt!!
