There’s All Kinds of Cool Things in Wyoming.
When you think of Wyoming, you probably think of wide open spaces, majestic mountains, and breathtaking natural wonders. But what exactly can you and your family expect to find here? A whole lot.
Yellowstone National Park
At the world’s first national park, you’ll find wonders you can’t find anywhere else on earth: volcanoes, hot springs, wildlife, mudpots…and of course the famed geysers. Take a long hike around the grounds or sit and marvel at the stunning sunset—either way, you’ll have an unforgettable adventure at Yellowstone National Park.
Devils Tower National Monument
This geologic monument really broke the mold! Devils tower stands tall amongst the rolling prairie surrounding the Black Hills. The site, which is considered sacred to the Northern Plains Indians and other tribes, contains hundreds of parallel cracks that help make it one of the finest traditional crack climbing areas in North America.
Grand Teton National Park
There are an astounding two hundred miles of trails to explore at one of the world’s most iconic locales. Backpack through the range on a long summer weekend. Take a scenic drive, keeping your eyes peeled for bears, elk, and bison. Fish, bike, birdwatch, climb—your possibilities at Grand Teton National Park are truly endless.
Wind River Mountain Range
Wind River Mountain Range is home to more than 40 named peaks over 13,000 feet—including Gannett Peak, Wyoming’s highest at 13,804 feet. You can also find seven of the largest glaciers in the Rocky Mountains and over 1,300 named lakes. Needless to say, the odds are that you’ll find something incredible to explore, climb, hike, and experience here.
Hot Springs State Park
Hot springs may be the reason you visit Hot Springs State Park, but there are a ton of other natural wonders to enjoy here. Hot water rushes down colorful terraces along the Big Horn River at a rate of 8,000 gallons per day. The park’s free bath house offers 104-degree water to soothe away aches and pains. And there are 6.2 miles of trails to trek.
