The Oregon Trail

Most visitors to Wyoming have one thing in mind: Yellowstone National Park. This amazing spectacle, which our route takes us right through, is deservedly the state’s premier visitor attraction, but the rest of Wyoming holds a surprising variety of interesting places, from Wild West cow towns to the wide open spaces of the Great Plains.

The least populated of the 50 states, Wyoming has more wide-open space than just about anywhere else. If you like the idea of traveling for miles and miles without seeing anyone, then coming upon a crossroads outpost where the post office shares space with the general store and gas station, you’ll want to take the time to explore Wyoming.
