Wyoming

wyoming_yellowstone.jpg Wyoming is located in the western region of the United States. Its northwestern corner encompasses Yellowstone National Park, which takes in parts of the state of Montana and Idaho lying north. Utah and Colorado border its south side and South Dakota and Nebraska lie east.

Ninth in size, the state's scenic terrain is partially mountainous (the Rockies, including the Teton ranges), partially flat (the Great Plains) and partially canyons and ridges (the Great Basins). The forests, which cover about a fifth of the state are mostly of the evergreen species.

Population in Wyoming stands at about 500,000 with most of the people living in cities and towns. However, the state is considered sparsely populated even the largest city, the capital city of Cheyenne, has less than 55,000 residents. Next is Casper at about 50,000.

Climate in the "Cowboy State" is seasonal with hot summers in the low plains and long and cold winters in the higher elevations. Thunderstorms and hailstorms in summer months and heavy snowfalls in the winter are common.

Yellowstone National Park, the nation's first national park (created in 1887), is a major highlight in Wyoming, attracting hoards of visitors. In fact, the natural resouces of Wyoming are the states biggest assets: People go out of the way to view the Grand Tetons, a row of magnificent mountains seen from many miles away, and as well as other timeworn formations such as the Devils Tower National Monument and the Fossil Butte National Monument.

Outdoor activities include hiking, boating, climbing, fishing and skiing. Jackson Hole is a popular hill with locals and visitors alike for skiing.
