Yellowstone National Park

You won’t fail to be disappointed by the amazing scenery of the surrounding Wyoming area. Wyoming is home to Yellowstone National Park and Teton National Park. Famous for its geyser Old Faithful which shoots forth around 3700 gallons of water heated to 95 degrees Celsius, this iconic natural phenomenon is definitely worth a visit when you’re in the area. Along with the geyser, you’ll be able to see all the wildlife in their natural habitat. So, if you see a bit of a road traffic jam when in Yellowstone it’ll probably be a family of bears literally stopping traffic or a few elk leisurely walking across the roadway. Designated in 1872 as America’s first National park, Yellowstone has amazed and entertained visitors and tourists from global destinations.

With the Oregon trail crossing the state of Wyoming, across the lands of the native American tribes of the Sioux, Crow, Shoshone, and Ute, you’ll be able to explore the first trading post of Fort Laramie which was established in 1834. There are numerous hot springs where you can swim such as Firehole River which as its name suggests is heated by the lava just below the surface. Yellowstone which spans Wyoming Idaho and Montana has more hot springs than anywhere else on earth. There’s no better place to explore the great American outback than Wyoming and no better place to stay than Jackson Hole.

The Waltons

Fondly known as the cowboy state, there’s no shortage of horses with several wild herds roaming free in the wilderness. You’ll find Elk, bison, moose and deer not to mention black bears. You’ll permanently feel like you’re on a film set because the area is so iconic, it will be familiar from movies like A river runs through it, The Bridges of Madison County, Butch Cassidy, and the Sundance Kid. The film Spencer’s Mountain which formed the basis for the long-running series “the Waltons” was shot near the town of Jackson and gives some idea of the feel of the area and the scenery which surrounds it.

Wyoming maybe the 9th largest state, but is the least densely populated alongside Montana, Idaho and. But to consider it a flyover state would be to miss the heart of cowboy country and miss a wonderful opportunity to see American culture, history, and scenery at its very best. To visit Wyoming is to visit the heart of America and have the chance to soak up the atmosphere, scenery and the spectacular national parks and forests. With its beautiful rivers, lakes, and waterfalls there’s something for absolutely everyone. So why not book your trip to the heart of cowboy country and pack some hiking boots to explore its native American reserves and maybe catch a pow-wow or even a rodeo for some real cowboy action.
