Hyattville, WY (AP) - The Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site has reopened after being closed for a week due to flooding.

Heavy runoff from melting snow damaged the park's main road. State officials say the road is being repaired but visitors should be cautious around work zones.

The archaeological site is on the western slope of the Big Horn Mountains about 20 miles north of Ten Sleep. The site features a large cliff with hundreds of Native American petroglyphs and pictographs.
