Wyoming Overview

While it might be the least populated state in the U.S., Wyoming is also one of the most beautiful. Nicknamed “The Cowboy State”, Wyoming shares a sense of the West with Montana in that it is one of the last frontiers where that way of life still exists. From Yellowstone National Park to the High Plains, the Rocky Mountains, to the ski resort of Jackson Hole or such epic scenery as Devil’s Tower National Monument, Wyoming boasts some of the most scenic regions in the entire United States, and what it lacks in infrastructure and cities it more than makes up for in wild landscapes of untouched wilderness.

The largest cities in Wyoming are Cheyenne and Casper, but they pale in comparison to most other “major” cities in terms of their size. Wyoming’s strength lies not in her cities, but in her wide-open spaces and natural beauty. From places like Dead Indian Pass to the Fossil Butte National monument, almost 50% of Wyoming is owned by the U.S. Government and operated as either State or National parks. There are various ski resorts, hiking trails, and other ways to access the landscape, but of particular note is the harshness of the winters in this state. If you happen to be traveling in Wyoming during the winter, it is imperative that you pay attention to snow gates and road conditions at all times. Many people liken Wyoming to Siberia in the winter, because the distance between populated areas combined with blinding sheets of snow and ripping wind conditions can literally leave people stranded on the highway without being able to see or know where they are, potentially for days.

While there is a certain rugged appeal to the cities and places like Laramie, Jackson, Gillette, and Cheyenne can certainly offer modern amenities, the culture is western. This isn’t called “Cowboy Country” without reason; most of the people in the state are tied to ranching in some way or another, so keep that in mind while visiting.
