Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States. The western two-thirds of the state is covered mostly with the mountain ranges and rangelands in the foothills of the eastern Rocky Mountains, while the eastern third of the state is high elevation prairie known as the High Plains. It is known for two national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Its state government is currently controlled by the Republican Party, and its current governor is Mark Gordon.

In the California sand,
Died right there beside him in Cheyenne.
