About Wyoming

The State of Wyoming is known world-wide for its scenic vistas and its Western and Native American heritage. From the towering Grand Tetons and Yellowstone to the wide open plains to the desolation of Hells Half Acre, you won't find a greater variety of landscapes anywhere.

For the sportsperson, you'll find year-round outdoor recreation from world-class fly fishing to hundreds of thousands of acres of the finest skiing and snowmobiling country around to winter rock climbing on the renowned naturally-warmed cliffs at Sinks Canyon State Park. Our big-game hunting is unparalleled and if you'd rather hunt wildlife or nature with a lens or brush and canvas, Wyoming has always been a favorite of the masters.

If your interests are in American, Western or Native American history, you won't find a richer source. From the Teton Sioux and the Plains Indians who made their lives here before the White Man, to those brave pioneers who etched their names into Independence Rock along the Oregon Trail, to the historic forts and still-observed Mountain Man Rendezvous, our American heritage has been carefully preserved in hundreds of museums, parks and historic sites across the state. If truly ancient peoples and animal life is more your area of interest, Wyoming boasts several of the best-known archaeological and paleontological finds and projects in the world.

In short, whatever your interests, you'll find Wyoming rich in rugged beauty, history and culture, as well as surprisingly strong in industry and technology. What's more, you'll find some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet waiting to show you the way. For more information on Wyoming, see our links page.
