Eastern Wyoming

The plains of Eastern Wyoming are rich farm lands with herds of cattle and crops. As you go west you approach the foothills of the Rockies. In places the bluffs suddenly rise straight up. In other places the mountains rise more slowly and are cut with canyons and passes.



Western Wyoming

Notice the yellow color of the rocks. As you leave the high desert near Cody and climb through the passes into Yellowstone National Park, the rocks and vegetation take on a yellow hue.

Yellow Rocks
Devil's Tower


Devils Tower National Monument
Northern Wyoming

Often climbed this vertical rock is thought to be the cooled cone of an ancient volcano. Visitors enjoy the winding path that circles it.


Bison

Once bison roamed Wyoming freely moving north and south across the plains with the seasons. The herds are again growing in size. In Yellowstone National Park they occasionally cause "Animal Jams" as traffic stops and backs up to allow the bison herd to pass en mass.

Buffalo
Big Horn


Big Horn Mountains
Central Wyoming

Pictured is the pass that one takes to go up and over the 9,000 foot high Big Horn Mountains of central Wyoming. In the river gorge the road follows the path cut by the rushing waters over the centuries.

Grand Tetons National Park

South of Yellowstone National Park, along the very western edge of Wyoming lie the jagged teeth of the Grand Tetons. They are often thought of as a sportman's paradise. In addition to mountain climbing and skiing there is hiking, bicycling, boating, and fishing to name only a few activities. The area is home to hardy (winters can be extreme) people dedicated to preserving the beauty of their environment.

Grand Tetons
Irma Hotel


Irma Hotel Shootout
Cody

Yes, really. Here in the land of Buffalo Bill is the touristed town of Cody where after a day at the museum you can enjoy a bit of the wild, wild west out front of the Irma Hotel.
