I went to Bighorn Canyon National Park in Wyoming with my family on September 26th. The cliffs are 1,000 feet high and Bighorn River flows through it. Did you know Delaware could fit in this national park?

We ate lunch overlooking the river at Horseshoe Bend. While there, we saw a big fish swimming in the water. A Black-billed Magpie also landed on a fence close to us.

Then we crossed over the border into Montana. We went to Devil’s Overlook to look into the canyon and saw people fishing in the river. They looked really small. While we were exploring the park we saw a rabbit and wild Mustangs (horses). We also explored an abandoned ranch.

Finally, we drove up the western peak of Medicine Mountain in Wyoming, which is also located in the Bighorn range. It was 9,642 feet high. At the top we found the Medicine Wheel, which is a National Historic Landmark that Native Americans use.

P.S. Franklin was not on this trip. A member of his squad, Pronghorn Antelope, came with me this time.
