Notes:jMany varieties of willow grow in the park: alpine willows, mountain willows, and whiplash willows are a few. The whiplash willows with their shining red stems are the kind that grow here. In addition to tipis, Arapahos used temporary willow shelters during the summer, especially when traveling or hunting in smaller groups away from the main group.
