My state flower is the paintbrush. If you go on a vacation in Wyoming you can visit a Dude ranch. At Dude ranches people feel like they are in the old wild west and people sleep at Dude Ranches and you can hunt on your vacation too. You can hunt antelope, moose, mouton sheep, deer, bear and elk. The land forms are the Rocky Mountains, same flat ground such as the Great Plains and there are forests, lakes, rivers, valleys and National Parks.
