The Red Desert in south central Wyoming drains neither east nor west. The continental divide splits and goes around the desert on all sides and leaves the basin without normal drainage.
The Wind River changes its name in the middle of the stream and becomes the Big Horn River at a location at the northern end of the Wind River Canyon, where each year the Native Americans hold a ceremony representing the "Wedding of the Waters".
