Flooding closes Wyo. state parks

HYATTVILLE, Wyo. (AP) – Flooding has closed two attractions in

Wyoming’s state park system.

     One is the Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site northeast of

Worland. High water on Medicine Lodge Creek has closed the site

until further notice.

     The Northern Wyoming Daily News reports high water has flooded

the road and campgrounds at the site known for its American Indian

pictographs and petroglyphs.

     Bear River State Park in Evanston also has closed due to

flooding. State parks officials say they expect the river to remain

extremely high through Thursday.

     They say the park will reopen after it is safe for people to

re-enter the area.
