Leaving Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons brought us to the Big Horns, an offshoot of the Rocky Mountains. Climbing up the very steep drive to the Medicine Wheel was a breathtaking view of the valley, rock formations and scary cliffs. The Medicine Wheel was a Native American installation that was created somewhere between the 12th and 15th century. It has 28 spokes and measures about 80 feet in diameter. This is a sacred place to not only the Native Americans but to many spiritual visitors. There are a number of different symbols of the visitors that have made this mile and a half pilgrimedge to the top of the mountain. It was a long hike but worth the trip. On the way down we came upon a family of deer on the hillside. Our next stop was a night at a hotel in Sheridan, Wyoming. We were deep in the west.
