It’s how you feel connected to the big picture that matters. It might be camping in the shadows of the Tetons at Colter Bay Village, taking a romantic Jenny Lake Lodge getaway or watching wildlife right outside your window at Jackson Lake Lodge, but it will happen. At Grand Teton Lodge Company, in the heart of the Grand Teton National Park, we see people make that personal connection everyday. To start yours, visit us at gtlc.com/wy.

WELCOME

WELCOME TO WYOMING FROM TOP: GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, FOCUS PRODUCTIONS/BOB WOODALL; LEFT TO RIGHT; SON PETE, GOVERNOR MEAD, FIRST LADY CAROL MEAD, DAUGHTER MARY.

My family and I welcome you to Wyoming! We are glad you are visiting and hope you enjoy your stay. In Wyoming, we draw a lot of strength from our Western heritage and lifestyle. There is a reason we advertise our state as “Forever West” — it’s because that’s what we are. We have 11,000 farms and ranches, which give our state its distinctive character — with open spaces, livestock, wildlife, and working cowboys and cowgirls. We have vibrant small towns, where most everyone knows each other and there is a strong sense of community. We enjoy the outdoors, in any weather and any season, for every sort of pursuit from world-class hunting and fishing to top-tier rodeos, skiing, climbing, arts events and county fairs. Please join us in these or other activities — you will find all the specifics you need to build your own Wyoming adventure in the pages of this journal. Still there is more — scenery and hospitality come to mind. Technicolor sunsets and the sights and sounds of our nightlife — and by that we mean nature — are among the special things you can behold here on a daily basis. And friendliness is ever present — we want visitors to experience Wyoming as we do and to feel at home. There is so much to see and do in Wyoming and this journal chronicles the possibilities. Wyoming is home to more than a dozen mountain ranges. Wyoming’s natural wonders include well-known ones like Yellowstone, Devils Tower and the Grand Tetons. But there are many others you will want to get to know also — Wind River Canyon, Sinks Canyon, Vedauwoo, the Green River and the Red Desert, just to get you started. One last thing … we hope you take away lasting memories and come back soon. Governor Matt Mead and the First Family

guided adventures & horseback trips

NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY Evidence of prehistoric inhabitants in Wyoming dates back 12,000 years and provides endlessly rich explorations of Native American culture. East of Lovell is the Medicine Wheel, a mysterious, ancient stone shrine. In Central Wyoming, Fort Washakie is home to the Wind River Reservation, the nation’s seventh largest. Here you can visit the graves of Chief Washakie and Sacajawea, the Shoshone woman who helped guide the Lewis and Clark expedition. Also view petroglyphs along the Green River; visit Crowheart Butte, site of a famous 1866 battle; and museums throughout the state, such as the Arapaho Cultural Museum in Ethete and Shoshone Tribal Cultural Center in Fort Washakie.

NATIONAL PARKS ESSENTIALS

The northwest corner of Wyoming is truly one of those places everyone should see at least once — and the fortunate will visit again and again. For more than a century, people have traveled here from all over to see some of America’s most cherished natural wonders. With the promise of postcard-worthy vistas, amazing wildlife and outdoor adventures in a beautiful, rugged setting, a visit to Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks has come to define the quintessential American vacation. And today, the same pristine, breathtaking landscape of mountains, lakes, waterfalls, forests and geysers — not to mention a plethora of wildlife — still beckons to those who crave nature, serenity, adventure and a classic getaway unlike any other.

›› Dining options range from cafeterias to fine restaurants throughout the parks.

FRONTIER TRAILS Gold seekers and other pioneers made their way through Wyoming in the 1800s on frontier trails that crisscrossed Wyoming. In Casper, home to the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, delve into the history of the Oregon Trail, the Mormon Trail, the California Trail and the Pony Express route through livinghistory presentations, tours and events. Also check out the still-visible “signature ruts” of the Oregon Trail near Guernsey. For an exciting family experience, relive the adventure of the American West on a covered wagon train ride.

›› Guides and outfitters in nearby towns such as Jackson, Cody and Dubois often offer adventures in the parks. Find them on page 114. ›› Lodging in the parks ranges from campgrounds to lovely, historic lodges, and your best bet is to book early. Use the listings starting on page 124 to find campgrounds and other accommodations or visit wyomingtourism.org/placestostay.

RODEOS

›› Although the parks get their share of warm summer days, snow is possible as late as June, so pack accordingly.

Bucking broncos, raging bulls and the cowboys who dare to ride them draw big crowds in most Wyoming towns. Lander claims the oldest paid rodeo in the world, the Lander Pioneer Days Rodeo. The Annual Cody Stampede is another Independence Day favorite, and the town also hosts the Cody Nite Rodeo every evening all summer long. Then, there’s the “Daddy of ’Em All,” the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, a 10-day event featuring some of the industry’s top competitors.

›› Roads in Yellowstone are closed in the winter, and spring and fall road closures are common, but that doesn’t mean that the parks are closed! Go to page 60 to learn about vacation ideas at these national parks during the wintertime.

SUMMER PACK TRIPS:

›› Wyoming still holds true to its Wild West roots, meaning you can experience the same Victorian ambiance visitors did in the 18th and 19th centuries in the state’s historic hotels. Stay in the same places as notable Old West personalities like Annie Oakley, Butch Cassidy, Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane. ›› With spectacular scenery and pristine public lands, you might not want to stay inside when you feel like getting back to basics. Wyoming’s spacious terrain lends to spectacular camping, where there’s nothing between you and the sparkling stars above.

FISHING TRIPS:

Pony up to fresh streams brimming with rainbow, brook and cutthroat trout. Fishing trips can go overnight or just for a day, but they all have one thing in common: inviting waters for you and your inner-angler to partake in.

If getting proper gear is your Achilles heel, outfitters can help with that too. Perhaps you need to rent a Jeep, horse, tent or llama to help with your upcoming backcountry trip, or maybe you just need someone to help you plan that epic climb on the north face of Devils Tower that you’ve been dreaming of for so long. Think of outfitters as al la carte; they’ll help with equipment needs to create a 100 percent worry-free trip.

If you’ve always dreamed of a Forever West vacation, but you’re intimidated about wandering into the wilds of Wyoming on your own, consider hiring an outfitter to make your dreams come true. Outfitters will organize your trip from arrival to departure, ensuring you’ll have a full belly during the day and a place to lay your head at night.

Horseback riding in Wyoming gives the unique opportunity to inhale some much-needed fresh air and venture across acres and acres of wilderness not accessible by foot or car. There’s really no better way to roam free than to saddle up and wander through wide-open spaces, over jagged peaks and across rushing streams that criss-cross the landscape.

Cody, near Yellowstone National Park, is an excellent starting point, with plenty of ways to explore town founder Buffalo Bill’s legendary personality and the Old West he loved. Here, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West houses the Buffalo Bill Museum, Plains Indian Museum, Cody Firearms Museum, Draper Natural History Museum and the Whitney Western Art Museum. Another popular hub for Old West exploration is Fort Laramie, once an important fur-trading post. At the Fort Laramie Historic Site find restored historic buildings and museum exhibits displaying uniforms, weapons and other artifacts.

Continue north on I-25 on your way through Wheatland. Recreational opportunities abound in the area, including golfing, fishing and boating. Stop by the Oregon Trail Ruts National Landmark on your way to Fort Laramie National Historic Site. Carved into stone, these wagon ruts tell the story of thousands of emigrants following the Oregon Trail in the mid-1800s. Fort Laramie, established as a fur-trading post in 1835 and revamped into a military post to protect trail travelers, was the first important stopping point for emigrants in Wyoming and also witnessed the Indian resistance.

Charming small towns fill the next two spots on this route. Douglas is home to the mythical jackalope.

From Casper, deviate from I-25 and go northwest on Hwy 20. Known as one of Wyoming’s best walleye and trout fisheries, Boysen State Park is surrounded by the Wind River Indian Reservation. The reservoir is warm enough for all water sports and has an easily accessible swimming beach. Beginning in the town of Shoshoni nearby, the Wind River Canyon Scenic Byway puts you face to face with the windswept west as you drive through vertical rock walls rising 2,500 feet.

After visiting the welcome center head to Cheyenne — Wyoming’s state capital. Rich with history from its development along the tracks of the Union Pacific Railroad in the mid-1800s, it’s home to numerous museums and the world’s largest outdoor rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days (July 18–27, 2014).

WHEATLAND TO GLENDO STATE PARK

PARK TO PARK ROUTE OVERVIEW Stops: 30 Distance: About 563 miles Start: Cheyenne End: Yellowstone National Park Estimated trip time: 9 hours

CHEYENNE TO WHEATLAND Follow along the old Park to Park Highway, a popular early 1900s automobile route that connected several national parks in the West. Start your trek at the Wyoming state line on I-25 near Cheyenne, and watch for Exit 4. Jump off to visit the new Southeast Wyoming Welcome Center. The center gives a taste of only-in-Wyoming

Continue north on I-25 on your way through Wheatland. Recreational opportunities abound in the area, including golfing, fishing and boating. Stop by the Oregon Trail Ruts National Landmark on your way to Fort Laramie National Historic Site. Carved into stone, these wagon ruts tell the story of thousands of emigrants following the Oregon Trail in the mid-1800s. Fort Laramie, established as a fur-trading post in 1835 and revamped into a military post to protect trail travelers, was the first important stopping point for emigrants in Wyoming and also witnessed the Indian resistance.

GLENDO STATE PARK TO CASPER After your trip to the past in Fort Laramie, it’s time to get wet and wild at Glendo State Park. Boaters, anglers and swimmers enjoy its sandy beaches and clear waters. Charming small towns fill the next two spots on this route. Douglas is home to the mythical jackalope. According to legend, after hunting some jackrabbits with his brother, Douglas Herrick took one to a taxidermy shop. As the rabbit lay near mule deer horns, inspiration hit Herrick, who had soon mounted the crossbred critter. The Laramie Mountains and Medicine Bow National Forest surround the second town, Glenrock, making it a perfect hub for fishing, camping and mountain biking. As you leave Glenrock, don’t forget to stop by the Ayers Natural Bridge, just five miles off I-25. A remarkable natural

CASPER TO THERMOPOLIS Located in the center of the state, Casper is Wyoming’s adventure capital and second largest city. Casper is a mecca for world-class fly-fishing on the North Platte River and won’t disappoint eager anglers. While there, visit the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, commemorating the pioneers who traveled westward in the state’s early days. From Casper, deviate from I-25 and go northwest on Hwy 20. Known as one of Wyoming’s best walleye and trout fisheries, Boysen State Park is surrounded by the Wind River Indian Reservation. The reservoir is warm enough for all water sports and has an easily accessible swimming beach. Beginning in the town of Shoshoni nearby, the Wind River Canyon Scenic Byway puts you face to face with the windswept west as you drive through vertical rock walls rising 2,500 feet.

ROCKIES TO TETONS ROUTE OVERVIEW Stops: 30 Distance: About 469 miles Start: Pine Bluffs End: Yellowstone National Park, Jackson and Grand Teton National Park Estimated trip time: 7.75 hours

This route traces a path between two of the most iconic and majestic mountain ranges in the United States: The Rockies and Tetons. Wind through Wyoming and experience the recreational and historical activities this contoured land provides.

Park, built around the world’s largest single-mineral hot springs — a perfect spot for a mid-road-trip soak. The nearby Legend Rock Petroglyph Historic Site invites visitors to view more than 300 petroglyphs spanning thousands of years.

CODY TO YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK Northwest of Thermopolis is the town of Cody, named after the famous Colonel William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody. Known as the preferred gateway to Yellowstone, you’ll experience nightly summer rodeos, gunfight re-enactments and historic factoids at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and the Museum of the Old West at Old Trail Town, where the lifestyle and history of the Frontier West is preserved

through a rare collection of authentic structures and furnishings. Toward the end of the route, veer onto the Buffalo Bill Cody Scenic Byway, which starts about 25 miles west of Cody at the Shoshone National Forest border. This byway follows the north fork of the Shoshone River through the scenic Wapiti Valley to the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park, the nation’s first national park and your final destination. Visit iconic spots like Old Faithful, Lower Falls and Yellowstone Lake while catching a glimpse of Yellowstone’s legendary wildlife. SHARE YOUR WYOMING ROAD TRIP PHOTOS facebook.com/visitwyoming

PINE BLUFFS TO LARAMIE As you start out in the southeast corner of the state, pass through the Pine Bluffs Information Center on your way to the capital city of Cheyenne. Rich with history, Cheyenne housed a depot for the Union Pacific Railroad in the 1867 and is now home to several memorable museums, local restaurants and the world-famous Cheyenne Frontier Days. Continuing west on I-80 you’ll take a quick detour to Curt Gowdy State Park. The Laramie Mountains offer a stunning backdrop for outdoor enthusiasts, especially mountain bikers looking to singletrack its epic trails. Nearby is Vedauwoo Campground and Recreation area — another great place for rock climbers, hikers and campers.

LARAMIE TO RAWLINS You’ll get back on I-80 to head toward the town of Laramie. Home to the University of Wyoming, Laramie is a popular spot for recreation throughout the year, from fishing to skiing. The town is also home to the University of Wyoming Geological Museum and the American Heritage Center.

Next, travel along the Snowy Range Scenic Byway, open and clear of snow from late spring through mid-November. This byway starts in historic Centennial (known as the gateway to the Snowies) and crosses the Medicine Bow Mountain Range, showing off more than 29 miles of Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest splendor. Detour on your way to Rawlins and stop at Seminoe State Park just north of I-80. The park is surrounded by giant, white sand dunes and is home to thousands of pronghorn antelopes. It also features the Seminoe Mountains, Seminoe Reservoir WyomingTourism.org

and the famed “Miracle Mile” of the North Platte River, one of the most bountiful fishing spots in the state.

RAWLINS TO LANDER The town of Rawlins dates back to when tracks were first laid for the Union Pacific Railroad in Wyoming. It’s the center of a thriving sheep and cattle industry and is best known for the Wyoming Frontier Prison. Known as the “Old Pen,” this museum is said to be haunted with history. A break from the interstate will take you on Hwy 287 to the South Pass City Historic Site. Located north of the historic Oregon Trail, South Pass City was built in 1867 during the gold-mining boom. When the Carissa Mine struck a rich vein, the town’s population quickly rose to 2,000 people. Learn how the city also played an important role in the women’s suffrage movement.

LANDER TO RIVERTON A short distance from Lander to the northeast is the town of Riverton. Riverton is home to the 1838 Mountain Man Rendezvous, a gathering of Native Americans, fur trappers and mountain men.

You’ll find socializing, contests of skill (tomahawk throws, shooting, skinning), trading, tall tales told and more than a little drinking. Test your own modern-day skills at the Wind River Casino just outside of Riverton. During the summer months, the casino hosts a weekly Northern Arapaho Experience, where Arapaho men and women perform traditional dances for visitors.

RIVERTON TO DUBOIS Next up is Dubois, the perfect Old West town. Stop at the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center. The center tells the story of one of Wyoming’s signature animals and mountaineering expert — the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. From Dubois, head to the Moran Junction on Hwy 26 where you can choose your final destination: Jackson, Grand Teton National Park or Yellowstone National Park.

DUBOIS TO YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK Jackson is home to the National Elk Refuge, which provides a safe haven for thousands of elk each winter. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is famous for its skiing, but summer months are wonderful for outdoor activities, the arts and a mouth-watering dining scene. Grand Teton National Park’s postcard-worthy peaks are very popular among climbers, hikers and photographers. The exposed jagged rocks give these mountains their dramatic appearance in any season. Yellowstone National Park has served for generations as a sort of living museum, its natural splendors giving visitors an up-close-and-personal glimpse of what the continent was like in the days before recorded history.

Before heading into the town of Lander, you’ll stop at Sinks Canyon State Park. Sinks features a unique geologic phenomenon where the Popo Agie River vanishes into a large cavern (the Sinks) and then reappears in a trout-filled pool, the Rise, above a half mile down the canyon. Lander is located at the base of the Wind River Mountain Range and has several ways for you to stretch your legs: from mountain climbing, trout fishing and miles of hiking trails to the fantastic Beaver Creek cross-country skiing trail system.

SALT TO STONE ROUTE OVERVIEW Stops: 30 Distance: About 279 miles Start: Evanston End: Yellowstone National Park Estimated trip time: 5.5 hours

EVANSTON TO KEMMERER If you’re headed into Wyoming from the southwest corner, the preferred route is Salt to Stone, which runs northward along Wyoming’s western side and ends at Grand Teton or Yellowstone national parks. Upon crossing the Wyoming state line, stop in Evanston, a railroad town founded in 1868. Surrounded by mountains on all sides, Evanston is a hub for fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking and wildlife viewing. From Evanston head to Bear River State Park, where you can stop off at the visitor center to talk to locals about your travel plans. Bear River State Park is home to a small herd of bison and elk kept for public viewing in addition to three miles of foot trails. Continue east on I-80 to visit Fort Bridger State Historic Site. Fort Bridger was originally established as an emigrant supply stop along the Oregon Trail. Visit historic buildings like the trading post and stone barracks and browse through the museum and gift shops. Next, dip down from the town of Green River into Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. More than 2.5 million boaters, campers, hikers, fishermen, cross-country skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts recreate here each year. Find your way back to the interstate to exit onto Hwy 30 to the town of Kemmerer. Kemmerer is home to two famous festivals in July: FossilFest and Oyster Ridge Music Festival. It’s also where James Cash “JC” Penney founded his first retail store in 1902 when it was a booming mining town. Just west of Kemmerer is Fossil Butte National Monument. As Wyoming’s newest national monument, it contains more than 8,000 acres and protects a portion of the largest deposit of freshwater fish fossils in the world. The visitor center houses more WyomingTourism.org

than 300 fossils but if that’s not enough, hike an interpretive trail.

KEMMERER TO PINEDALE OR AFTON Once you’ve stopped in Kemmerer, choose between Pinedale and Afton as your next destination. ›› Pinedale is nestled on the western flank of the Wind River Mountain Range. The 12-mile-long boater-and fisher-friendly Fremont Lake is just three miles from town. On your way to the lake, stop by the Museum of the Mountain Man for a fascinating look into life during the 1800s fur trade era. ›› Afton is located in a growing rural community along the banks of Swift Creek. It’s home to the world’s largest elk-antler arch, built in 1958 with more than 3,000 elk antlers. Locals contribute to the growing arch when elk shed their antlers each year.

ALPINE TO JACKSON HOLE Head north from Afton to the beautiful town of Alpine, less than an hour away. The town is surrounded by national forest and connects to Jackson Hole by the Snake River Canyon, making it a gateway to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, Alpine is known as a headquarter for water sports on the nearby Palisades Reservoir, and with the many streams and three rivers converging in Alpine, the fishing is among the best in Wyoming.

JACKSON HOLE TO YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK Grand Teton National Park shelters stunning mountain scenery and a diverse array of wildlife. Rising more than 7,000 feet above the valley of Jackson Hole, the Teton Range dominates the park’s skyline. The range is very popular among climbers, hikers and photographers. Yellowstone National Park has more than 2 million acres of sprawling wilderness to explore, including the world-famous Old Faithful geyser. The park’s vast network of trails takes hikers to hundreds of secluded places where nature is left to its own devices.

BLACK TO YELLOW ROUTE OVERVIEW Stops: 30 Distance: About 489 miles Start: Sundance End: Yellowstone National Park Estimated trip time: 8.75 hours

From the Black Hills to Yellowstone National Park, this route takes you from the iconic Devils Tower west toward Yellowstone National Park. Along the way you’ll get up close and personal with many of Wyoming’s most distinctive geological features.

SUNDANCE TO GILLETTE Crossing over the state line from South Dakota, your first Wyoming stop will be the Vore Buffalo Jump. One of the most important archaeological sites of the late-prehistoric Plains Indians, the Vore is a natural sinkhole that was used as a bison trap from about 1500 to 1800. Then, stop at the Northeast Wyoming Welcome Center in Beulah for interactive displays and trip ideas from the knowledgeable staff. Travel from the welcome center to Devils Tower National Monument. In 1906, Teddy Roosevelt named the tower the United States’ first national monument. It looms more than 1,200 feet above Wyoming’s eastern plains and the Belle Fourche River. Take time to hike along the natural trails surrounding the monument and try to spot rock climbers scaling its columns.

GILLETTE TO BUFFALO After Devils Tower, head to the Campbell County Rockpile Museum in Gillette. Gillette’s natural resources make the area a key player in supplying en-

DEVILS TOWER NATIONAL MONUMENT, SUPERSTOCK.

It’s a remarkable drive from Alpine northeast to Jackson — one you’ll be glad to take again and again. The Jackson Hole area is encompassed by craggy mountain barriers. It’s a beautiful spot for outdoor recreation and wildlife watching. Before heading into Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, stop in Jackson to sample word-class dining or ride the tram up Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s slopes, which satisfy powder-hungry skiers each winter.

ergy around the world. Visit the museum to understand the history and culture of this thriving county. Take time for a free coal mine tour and see what events are going on at the CAM-PLEX Multi-Event Facilities.

BUFFALO TO SHERIDAN OR WORLAND Tucked away between the rolling plains of the Old West and the towering peaks of the Big Horn Mountains, Buffalo (one hour west of Gillette) is a perfect spot to explore wide-open spaces with a bike, boat or your two feet. Indulge in a wide variety of restaurants in town from laidback family fare to fine dining. Buffalo will serve as your fork in the road to decide between Sheridan and Worland as your next destination. ›› If you head northwest into Sheridan, you’ll experience the “King of Cowboy Towns.” With more than 30 buildings in the National Historic District, Sheridan’s Main Street is where the charm of the Old West meets a vibrant modern community.

 et off I-90 to Hwy 14 toward ›› G Lovell. Take a detour once you reach Lovell to see the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. Known as the land that time forgot, geologic forces have distorted and bowed once-level rock layers into 1,000foot cliffs that loom over Bighorn Lake.

›› Heading southwest will take you to the town of Worland. Worland is home to the Washakie Cultural Center and Museum, offering an incredible hands-on experience of life in the Bighorn Basin. Learn about early mammoth hunters, paleontology and early settlers.

From Worland, head 40 minutes north to Greybull. Greybull is located at the confluence of the Bighorn and Greybull rivers. Greybull’s proximity to the Big Horn Mountains makes it an accessible base camp for outdoor excursions such as fishing, horseback riding and camping. Or, take a small detour to cruise the Red Gulch/Alkali Scenic Byway. This 34-mile mostly unpaved route takes you along the red sandstone Chugwater Formation. The rugged canyons, caves and steep walls were eroded by water and carved by winds.

LOVELL TO CODY Whichever route you choose, you’ll end up in the town of Lovell, where rose gardens abound. Here you’ll find easy access to Big Horn Mountain National Forest and the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range. Wild mustangs descended from the horses of 16th-century Spanish Conquistadors make up wild herds that roam the canyons and ridges of the range. Observing these elegant, beautiful animals in an unrestrained, natural setting is something you won’t want to miss.

wildlife and the landscape that makes this part of Wyoming awe inspiring. While in Cody, a must-see is the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. The center celebrates the spirit of the American West with history, local lore and native culture. You’ll pass the Buffalo Bill Reservoir on Hwy 14 on your way to the northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park. With more than 2 million acres of sprawling wilderness to explore, Yellowstone stands as one of North America’s greatest assets. The iconic spots — Old Faithful, Lower Falls and Yellowstone Lake — will be familiar from paintings and photographs, but seeing them in person is a humbling experience.

Stop off in Powell as you continue your path toward Yellowstone. Located in the heart of the Big Horn Basin, Powell is surrounded by the Big Horn Prayer and Absaroka mountain ranges. While you’re in the area, take time to visit the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, the site of a WWII-era Japanese American Internment camp.

CODY TO YELLOWSTONE Continue west to the town of Cody, where you’ll experience outdoor adventure from rock climbing to fly-fishing and horseback riding. Three scenic byways (go to page 156 for more information) in the area offer opportunities to view WyomingTourism.org

3 STEPS TO A SUMMER VACATION IN YELLOWSTONE

A FEW MORE THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND: Driving in Yellowstone: It’s hard to predict how long it will take to get around — it often depends on traffic and weather, but also on how often you want to stop and look around. Yellowstone is Big: You won’t be able to see it all in a single visit. Weather: Temperatures in Yellowstone vary by elevation. Be prepared for anything from warm summer temperatures to snow as late as June.

Yellowstone National Park boasts the most and the widest array of geothermal features in the world, legendary wildlife and a hint of what the continent was like before civilization.

STEP 1: BOOK LODGING There are nine wonderful lodging options in the park, ranging from rustic simplicity to historic opulence. If you prefer to camp, there are five campgrounds run by Xanterra Parks & Resorts that allow reservations (call 307-344-7311). Seven campgrounds, however, are run by the National Park Service on a first-come, first-served basis and often fill up by mid-morning. Most campgrounds operate from mid-June through mid-September, although Mammoth Campground is open year-round. You can also consider staying nearby in Jackson (60 miles south) or Cody (50 miles east). Your options range from ranches and cabins to vacation rentals, historic hotels and B&Bs. Most offer daily transportation to and from Yellowstone. It’s advised to book your lodging up to eight months in advance. Go to page 150 for a directory of places to stay in and around Yellowstone.

STEP 2: PLAN HOW TO GET THERE Although much of Yellowstone’s appeal is its unspoiled seclusion, it’s easily accessible for travelers.

36 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

FLY: If you’re planning on flying, the Yellowstone Regional Airport is about three miles outside of Cody, near the park’s east entrance, and it offers service from Salt Lake City and Denver. Jackson Hole Airport is about 50 miles south of the park and offers service from different cities depending on the season. For a full fly list visit jacksonholeairport.com. Car rentals and shuttle services to the lodges inside park, nearby towns and hotels are available at all of the airports. DRIVE: Go to page 26 to choose a driving itinerary that leads to the park from four different Wyoming entry points.

STEP 3: CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURE Because Yellowstone is so large and there are so many things to see and do, it’s a good idea to plan your adventures well in advance (we suggest up to three months). Whether you choose to embark on a day hike or a backcountry excursion, venturing away from the paved roads in Yellowstone is a wonderful way to experience its peaceful grandeur. Camping in the backcountry requires a permit, and campsites can be reserved. Non-motorized transportation can also be a great way to see the park. One- and two-hour guided horseback rides are offered at Mammoth, Tower-Roosevelt and Canyon.

There are numerous ways to enjoy boating in the park. Bay Bridge marina on Yellowstone Lake rents rowboats and motorboats, and scenic cruises leave from there regularly in the summer. If you have your own boat, motorized or not, you must have a permit. World-class fly-fishing in the park’s rivers and streams is popular, and you can take a guided tour on a cabin cruiser or rent an outboard or rowboat. The fishing season begins the Saturday before Memorial Day weekend and lasts until early November. All anglers over the age of 15 must have a permit.

THE RODEO A TRUE WYOMING EXPERIENCE

In Wyoming, it doesn’t take long to realize why they call it the Cowboy State. Just look at the Wrangler-clad residents, the license plates and, of course, the most popular sport in the state — rodeo. Almost every town, big or small, hosts a rodeo of sorts throughout the summer where locals gather to engage in the revelry.

Born in the days of cattle and cowboys in the Wild West, rodeo planted its seed in Western culture with groups of cowboys showing off their riding and roping talents, sometimes competing with neighboring outfits. Eventually these get-togethers moved into towns as organized “buckin’ shows” and became increasingly popular.

Maybe it’s the culture that surrounds it, or maybe it’s the history behind it, but rodeo is unlike any other sport. Nowhere else can you truly sop up the Wyoming way of life quite like this. With animated announcers and traditional cowboys and cowgirls, any evening at the arena will be a whirlwind of Western charm, skilled horsemanship and riotous entertainment.

Go to page 24 for a list of popular rodeos in the state and use these tips below before you head to the arena.

DRESS THE PART You’ll find plenty of Western stores in Wyoming that will be happy to outfit you with authentic Western wear. Make sure

THE BASIC COWBOY LOOK

Get a pair of boots.

LEARN THE LINGO ›› A “pickup man” isn’t a guy looking for a date, but rather the horseback cowboy in the arena who “picks up” the bronc riders from their horses after a ride. ›› If someone says “dally” they aren’t telling you to lollygag around and take your time. Instead, “dally” refers to the action of wrapping the end of the rope around the saddle horn immediately after an animal is roped.  “spinner” is a bull that circles around, ›› A spinning and whipping the rider in a flurry. More points are awarded for successful rides on “spinners” that go both left and right.

GET WITH THE PROGRAM A typical rodeo consists of seven main events. These include bareback riding, tie down roping, team roping, bull riding, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding and barrel racing.

dude & guest ranches

GIDDYUP ESCAPE TO A WYOMING DUDE OR GUEST RANCH

Even the staunchest city slicker has an inner cowboy buried deep inside of him. The benefits of getting in touch with that fella go way beyond bragging rights and photo ops. What you’ll discover on a dude or guest ranch in Wyoming is most likely a transformative experience that you’ll never forget — all amid incredible mountain and prairie scenery, beside new lifelong friends and with a smile that makes your face hurt.

WHAT TO EXPECT IF YOU’RE A … … MOM OR POP Wyoming ranch experiences are famously great escapes for families with children of any age, from toddlers to teenagers. Many Wyoming ranches are family-owned and operated, so you’ll feel welcomed into another family’s home — one in which traditions are passed from one generation to another. Parents can also look forward to stressfree trip planning, as many ranches operate on an all-inclusive basis, offering meals, lodging and activities as packages.

44 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

… ROMANTIC Couples looking for a romantic getaway won’t be disappointed. Many ranches offer unexpected luxuries, such as spa treatments and gourmet food-and-wine packages. A getaway to a guest ranch is the perfect excuse to unplug, soak up stunning scenery and ride off into the sunset together.

… ADVENTURER (OR AT LEAST A DABBLER) Activities can quite literally fill every day of your stay at a dude or guest ranch — any time of year. If you want to get your hands dirty, pitch in on the cattle operations. Hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing or photography get you up close to the ruggedly beautiful surroundings. Or get the blood pumping with a snowmobiling, four-wheeling, whitewater rafting or hiking outing — or maybe even archery lessons.

More importantly, the family bonding that happens during a guest or dude ranch visit is incomparable to any other vacation. At many working ranches, guests of all ages can pitch in on the ranching operations, pulling together to get the job done. Even on ranches designed for a more carefree stay, horseback rides, songs around the campfire, square dancing — maybe even an impromptu game of softball — are the perfect vehicles for creating a new set of unforgettable family memories.

TO FIND THE RIGHT RANCH FOR YOU, see the listings in this guide on page 124, online at wyomingtourism.org/ranch or through the Wyoming Dude Ranchers’ Association at wyomingdra.com.

old west

ONCE UPON A TIME RELIVE THE STORIES OF THE OLD WEST William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, Sacajawea, Kit Carson, Butch Cassidy … such characters’ names precede them — but do you really know the people and events that shaped the American West? From Indian Wars to the world’s first official women’s suffrage, the spirit of the past will sweep you up and remind you just what makes the Old West endlessly fascinating.

WHERE TO START? LISTEN TO WHAT CALLS TO YOU …

OLD WEST ATTRACTIONS & MUSEUMS Western-themed attractions and museums dot Wyoming like bullet holes through a covered wagon. Cody, near Yellowstone National Park, is an excellent starting point, with plenty of ways to explore town founder Buffalo Bill’s legendary personality and the Old West he loved. Here, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West houses the Buffalo Bill Museum, Plains Indian Museum, Cody Firearms Museum, Draper Natural History Museum and the Whitney Western Art Museum. Another popular hub for Old West exploration is Fort Laramie, once an important fur-trading post. At the Fort Laramie Historic Site find restored historic buildings and museum exhibits displaying uniforms, weapons and other artifacts.

NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY Evidence of prehistoric inhabitants in Wyoming dates back 12,000 years and provides endlessly rich explorations of Native American culture. East of Lovell is the Medicine Wheel, a mysterious, ancient stone shrine. In Central Wyoming, Fort Washakie is home to
the Wind River Reservation, the nation’s seventh largest. Here you can visit the graves of Chief Washakie and Sacajawea, the Shoshone woman who helped guide the Lewis and Clark expedition. Also view petroglyphs along the Green River; visit Crowheart Butte, site of a famous 1866 battle; and museums throughout the state, such as the Arapaho Cultural Museum in Ethete and Shoshone Tribal Cultural Center in Fort Washakie.

FRONTIER TRAILS Gold seekers and other pioneers made their way through Wyoming in the 1800s on frontier trails that crisscrossed Wyoming. In Casper, home to the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, delve into the history of the Oregon Trail, the Mormon Trail, the California Trail and the Pony Express route through livinghistory presentations, tours and events. Also check out the still-visible “signature ruts” of the Oregon Trail near Guernsey. For an exciting family experience, relive the adventure of the American West on a covered wagon train ride.

RODEOS Bucking broncos, raging bulls and the cowboys who dare to ride them draw big crowds in most Wyoming towns. Lander claims the oldest paid rodeo in the world, the Lander Pioneer Days Rodeo. The Annual Cody Stampede is another Independence Day favorite, and the town also hosts the Cody Nite Rodeo every evening all summer long. Then, there’s the “Daddy of ’Em All,” the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, a 10-day event featuring some of the industry’s top competitors.

GUIDED ADVENTURES & OUTFITTERS

If you’ve always dreamed of a Forever West vacation, but you’re intimidated about wandering into the wilds of Wyoming on your own, consider hiring an outfitter to make your dreams come true. Outfitters will organize your trip from arrival to departure, ensuring you’ll have a full belly during the day and a place to lay your head at night.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: GUIDED ADVENTURE, FRED PFLUGHOFT; HORSEBACK-RIDING, DEREK DILUZIO.

If getting proper gear is your Achilles heel, outfitters can help with that too. Perhaps you need to rent a Jeep, horse, tent or llama to help with your upcoming backcountry trip, or maybe you just need someone to help you plan that epic climb on the north face of Devils Tower that you’ve been dreaming of for so long. Think of outfitters as a la carte; they’ll help with equipment needs to create a 100 percent worry-free trip.

WYOMING

ON HORSEBACK Horseback riding in Wyoming gives the unique opportunity to inhale some much-needed fresh air and venture across acres and acres of wilderness not accessible by foot or car. There’s really no better way to roam free than to saddle up and wander through wide-open spaces, over jagged peaks and across rushing streams that criss-cross the landscape. The best advice: Call a riding outfitter and explain your interests, time frame and experience. Approachable outfitters are more than willing to customize a horseback-riding experience that fits your personal needs and wants.

CHOOSE FROM THESE POPULAR HORSEBACK-RIDING ADVENTURES: DAY TRIPS:

SUMMER PACK TRIPS:

Perfect for families, day trips are a good way to stretch your legs while road tripping through the state. They also provide a great opportunity to see Wyoming’s top attractions in a new light. Trot the grounds in Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Bighorn Mountains or the Bridger Wilderness Area.

Multi-day guided pack trips let riders delve deep into Wyoming’s wilderness and get chummy with their horse companion. Cooks accompany the trip and whip up authentic chuckwagon meals and genuine cowboy breakfasts to counter the massive amounts of calories you’ll burn in and out of the saddle on your adventurous expedition.

hit the open road

HIT THE OPEN ROAD IN AN RV NORTHEAST WYOMING Visit the stateof-the-art welcome center near the state border on I-90, which features interactive displays and friendly folks who can give you all the information you need for your RV adventure. The highway then rolls over the western edge of the Black Hills, passes near Sundance Mountain and traverses the northern edge of the Powder River Basin before flanking the eastern side of the Bighorn Mountains. Be sure to take some side trips to explore some of Northeast Wyoming’s true gems, as well as many of its picturesque campgrounds. Those of particular appeal include Devils Tower KOA, just outside the boundaries of the nation’s first national monument, west of Hulett. Buffalo and Sheridan have multiple RV parks as well as numerous Native American war sites and museums — don’t miss the art at the Bradford Brinton Memorial west of Sheridan.

48 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

CENTRAL WYOMING Continuing into the heart of the state, you’ll find Casper, where several campgrounds/RV parks offer full services and local museums enthrall. Try the Tate Geological Museum, where you will see the largest mounted Columbian Mammoth in the world, or the Fort Caspar Museum, where you will learn about the local American West history. If you are a nature lover, check out Casper Mountain to hike, bike or cross-country ski on miles of scenic trails. From Casper, take I-25 south and merge onto US-26 to Guernsey where you will find several RV parks. On the way, be sure to detour three miles off the highway to Ayers Natural Bridge, a beautiful, natural rock formation with historical ties to Native Americans and white settlers.

SOUTHEAST WYOMING Begin at the welcome center near the state border on I-25 in Cheyenne. Helpful specialists can assist you in planning the next step in your RV trip and you’ll have access to a dump station and fresh water to get you ready for the next leg. Be sure to spend some time in Cheyenne, the state capital that is famous for hosting the largest outdoor rodeo in the world, Cheyenne Frontier Days. As you plan your travels beyond Cheyenne, consider don’tmiss spots such as Laramie, the Snowy Range and — of special interest to anglers — the Miracle Mile of the North Platte River.

SOUTHWEST WYOMING Interstate 80 stretches across the southern portion of the state, beginning near the western border in Evanston and continuing through Green River and Rock

Springs. The route parallels the Union Pacific Railroad, which gave birth to several communities and ultimately the Wyoming Territory as it pushed west in the late 1860s; you will find railroad history all along the highway. And don’t miss one of the jewels of Wyoming; Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area.

NORTHWEST WYOMING The Northwest region of Wyoming is home to some of America’s greatest natural treasures such as Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring and the craggily Teton mountains. Wake up to knockout views and sleep among our abundant wildlife in one of Wyoming’s national parks. Moreover, outside of Yellowstone and Grand Teton, RV parks dot the Northwest in places near Jackson, Lander, Pinedale and Dubois.

HIGHWAY 26/287 OVER TOGWOTEE PASS IN THE SHOSHONE NATIONAL FOREST NEAR DUBOIS, JEFF VANUGA.

Wyoming’s open roads, state and national parks, plentiful campgrounds and RV-friendly towns beckon those who love to travel in the comfort of a recreational vehicle. Remember, many of Wyoming’s attractions and charming towns lie slightly off the beaten path, so don’t be shy to turn off the interstates and explore our hidden treasures and incredible landscapes.

WHAT’S YOUR WYOMING

FROM TOP: CAMPING IN THE HIGH ALPINE OF THE TETON RANGE, JEFF DIENER.

CAMPING PERSONALITY ? In Wyoming, where the nighttime sky is filled with more bright, twinkling stars than you ever imagined possible, camping is a cherished ritual, a wonderful adventure and one of the best ways to immerse yourself in nature. With so much stunning wilderness in Wyoming, you’ll find every region of the state boasts a healthy inventory of campgrounds and RV parks — which means you can choose one with the amenities and access that are just right for you, whether you’re looking for a classic Western experience or a lakeside retreat. HISTORY BUFFS will be within walking distance of authentic Western relics at Indian Campground in Northeast Wyoming. There, grassy creekside campsites and cabin rentals are a short walk from the town of Buffalo, which has a quaint main street with shopping, an old-fashioned soda fountain, a restored 1925 carousel and Ferris wheel, a golf course and rodeos. BOATERS can get out on the water at Glendo Lakeside RV Park in Central Wyoming. Just five minutes from Glendo State Park’s Bennett Hill boat ramp. The park has easy access to boating, fishing and water skiing. All sites are large enough to accommodate RVs and boats, and boat

rentals are available if you don’t have your own vessel. AVID CLIMBERS will have prime access to the Tetons at the American Alpine Club Climbers’ Ranch in Northwest Wyoming. With dormitory-style cabins designed for adventurous climbers and their families, the ranch helps you prepare for your climb with logistics information and even a climbing library and lounge. YELLOWSTONE VISITORS can rest after a long day of exploring the nation’s first national park at Bridge Bay Campground. Located next to Bridge Bay Marina, the campground has views of Yellowstone Lake and access to water recreation. You might see bison and other wildlife nearby, and with more than 400 sites, this campground allows you to choose a shady, secluded spot or set up camp near the shore and watch the moonlight on the lake. LEGEND LOVERS will get a dose of lore at Devils Tower KOA in Northeast Wyoming. Camping where “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” was filmed in 1977, you’ll be camping in movie history while enjoying nightly showings of Spielberg’s extraterrestrial classic. The national

?

SCENERY SEEKERS won’t be disappointed at Stateline Cove Campground in Southwest Wyoming. Pitch your tent on the sandy shores of Flaming Gorge Reservoir, where stunning red-rock cliffs rise high above the shimmering blue water. Drive to the Red Canyon Overlook at sunrise for an out-of-this-world photo op. FAMILIES love Terry Bison Ranch in Southeast Wyoming. This working ranch offers bison-viewing tours, train rides, an Old Time Photo Studio, summertime carnival rides, fishing and horseback rides. Convenience is key here, with RV pull-through sites, tent sites and cabins. You’ll also find many other family-friendly activities in nearby Cheyenne. HORSEBACK RIDERS won’t find an equine-friendlier place to rest than Sundance Campground and Trailhead in Northeast Wyoming, which is designed to accommodate horses with six open corrals and two eight-horse stalls. You and your horse will be close to the trailhead for the Sundance Trail System, which offers horseback riding, hiking and biking as well as snowshoeing in the winter. HIGH-ALTITUDE ADVENTURERS can rest their heads at 10,800 feet above sea level at Sugarloaf Campground in Southeast Wyoming, where the state’s highest campground offers unobstructed views of the Snowy Range. It’s only open mid-July through mid-September, and it fills up almost every one of those nights, so book early. You’ll have easy access to Libby Lake and Lewis Lake for fishing, but don’t be shocked if you wake up to snow in July or August.

places to spot wildlife

PLACES TO SPOT

1

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

Needing no introduction, Yellowstone National Park is a wildlife enthusiast’s paradise. You’re likely to spot plenty of bison and elk from the road, but venturing into the backcountry might earn you sightings of grizzly bears, black bears, moose, gray wolves, bighorn sheep, coyotes, pronghorn, bald eagles and plenty of other wild creatures.

5

MEDICINE BOW NATIONAL FOREST

Moose, elk, mule deer, beaver, black bear, bobcat and coyote are just a few of the species in Medicine Bow National Forest. Travel through high mountain passes and past stunning lakes while looking for wildlife along the Snowy Range Scenic Byway, which composes a section of Hwy 130 between Laramie and Saratoga in the Southeast region.

50 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

2

GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

The park’s diverse landscape provides habitats for black bears, grizzly bears, moose, elk, coyotes, bison, mule deer, river otters, bald eagles, golden eagles, sage grouse, trumpeter swans and much more. For a guaranteed wintertime elk sighting, visit the National Elk Refuge, just south of the park, where 7,500 migrating elk spend each winter.

6

PILOT BUTTE WILD HORSE SCENIC LOOP

Connecting Green River and Rock Springs in the Southwest region, the 24-mile Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Loop is one of the best places in the country to experience the thrill of watching a galloping herd of wild horses. The gravel road takes you through an area in which an estimated 1,500 horses roam.

BIG HORN MOUNTAINS

North of the town of Green River, Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge borders 36 miles along the Green River. The river provides a lush oasis for 220 species of birds and other wildlife.

WIND RIVER MOUNTAINS

SEEDSKADEE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

THE RED DESERT

Arid deserts aren’t often known as prime habitat for wild animals, but southwestern Wyoming’s Red Desert is the exception. Its 6 million acres of sand dunes and buttes are home to 350 species of wildlife, including the largest migratory herd of pronghorn in the contiguous U.S. and the world’s largest herd of rare desert elk.

The Wind River Range comprises a landscape of high peaks (35 of which reach more than 13,000 feet in elevation), lush valleys, more than 1,300 lakes and the wild Wind River, making it a postcard-worthy setting for backcountry wildlife watching.

10 UNFORGETTABLE WINTER WYOMING ADVENTURES

Sprawling blankets of snow, unlimited terrain to explore and an undeniable spirit of adventure make Wyoming a genuine winter wonderland. With an endless variety of activities, there’s something to suit everyone, from the casual explorer to the seasoned thrill-seeker. Here are 10 essential Wyoming winter adventures.

8

SLEIGH RIDES: Gliding through the snow in a horse-drawn sleigh will forever be a fond family memory. You can personalize your experience with plenty of package options, such as a trip to and from an elegant dinner or a cozy campfire in the Wyoming wilderness. SNOWSHOEING: While this serene winter sport might seem intimidating to newbies, no training is necessary. Once you’re strapped into a pair of snowshoes, you need nothing more than a trail map to get started on your adventure — of course, there are also professional guides that will help you navigate if you prefer.

4

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: There are 11 resorts in the state dedicated solely to cross-country skiing, and that’s in addition to state and national parks. Flat, open valleys are plentiful and great for beginners, while more difficult glades and gentle hills offer more of a challenge.

5

YURT TRIPS: Jaunting from one rustic round cabin to the next amid kneedeep powder is an excursion you can’t find just anywhere. Go to Southwest Wyoming, where there’s a well-developed trail system connecting five yurts near Evanston.

54 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

HOT SPRINGS: Outdoor swimming in the winter? Yes, it’s possible in the numerous hot springs around Wyoming. You can scurry from the locker room to the steamy pool and then enjoy the relaxation and scenery.

DOWNHILL SKIING: The powder princess, the backcountry baron and the duke of downhill will all relish the majesty of Wyoming skiing. Find a luxury experience at resorts such as Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, or enjoy several off-thebeaten-path destinations such as White Pine and Snowy Range ski areas. SNOWMOBILING: If the roar of an engine is music to your ears, then snowmobiling is the activity for you. Saddle up on a 500-pound machine that will get your adrenaline pumping on more than 2,000 miles of groomed and ungroomed trails.

9

ICE SKATING: Giant indoor ice arenas and quaint frozen ponds — wherever you are, there will be skating and rental equipment nearby. Try a lesson and you can be spinning and leaping like Evan Lysacek by the end of the afternoon.

10

ICE CLIMBING: The cascading waterfalls of the Teton Range freeze solid in the winter, tempting the most daring explorers to climb the rugged towers of ice. The Ice Climbing Park at Grand Targhee Resort in Jackson has areas for advanced mountaineers as well as those just learning.

WORLD-CLASS WINTER

With more than 4,000 feet of vertical terrain and a charming village of restaurants and lodging, Jackson Hole truly has it all. Located in the heart of the Teton Mountain Range, this famous destination is beloved by expert skiers looking for backcountry adventure, beginners in search of top-notch ski lessons and even those who prefer to skip the slopes altogether and head straight for the après-ski hot spots.

ONE OF THE HIGHEST AVERAGE ANNUAL SNOWFALLS

Even when other areas of the country are dry, there’s a good chance it’s dumping in Jackson Hole. The resort accumulates one of the highest snowfall totals in the country — an average of 400 inches of light, fluffy powder.

No need to ride three chairlifts for an hour to get to the top of this mountain. The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort tram rises a whopping 4,139 vertical feet in 15 minutes, more than any other vertical rise in the nation.

Off-piste? Oh, yes. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort allows skiers and boarders to access out-of-bounds terrain, a practice unprecedented for ski resorts in the U.S. The resort offers expert guides for hire to teach you how to travel safely in the backcountry.

5 REASONS JACKSON HOLE RULES

HIDDEN PLACES TO SKI & RIDE It’s no secret that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort offers some of the best skiing and riding in the nation. However, you may not know that Wyoming is also home to several other epic skiing and riding areas that boast some of the largest average annual snowfall, providing deep, fluffy and abundant snow conditions.

SNOWY RANGE SKI RESORT Located 32 miles west of Laramie, Snowy Range Ski Resort is in the heart of the magnificent Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest. Riders will relish the Renegade Park and half-pipe while skiers can rip turns down the long trails — the longest one extending well over a mile long.

WHITE PINE SKI AREA & RESORT

SKIING THE BACKCOUNTRY, DEREK DILUZIO.

Just 10 miles from Pinedale in the stunning Wind River Mountains, the White Pine Ski Area & Resort is Wyoming’s oldest ski area and a dedicated family-oriented mountain. 1,100 feet of vertical terrain give way to 25 glorious trails and visitors enjoy few, if any, lift lines.

SLEEPING GIANT SKI AREA A community-run ski area, Sleeping Giant Ski Area offers a truly Western feel brimming with local hospitality. Located just three short miles from Yellowstone National Park, it is not uncommon to see herds of elk and other fascinating

ADVENTURE

wildlife. In fact, with its remote location, chances are you will see more elk than lift lines.

PINE CREEK SKI AREA Located in Southwest Wyoming near the town of Cokeville, Pine Creek Ski Area covers 1,450 vertical feet of pure skiing and riding bliss. Thirty runs cater to every skill level, and, for the boarder in the family, there is a terrific terrain park with a well manicured half-pipe. Once again, lift lines here are about as rare as a sighting of the elusive Wyoming jackalope.

HOGADON SKI AREA This ski area, on Casper Mountain, is a locals’ haunt with a welcoming vibe for visitors. Its state-of-the-art snowmaking and low-key atmosphere make it one of the state’s prime wintertime hidden gems. Not a downhill skier or snowboarder? Hogadon offers 15 miles of groomed nordic ski trails and 60 miles of machine-groomed snowmobile trails nearby.

BIG HORN MOUNTAINS

In Central/Southern Wyoming, the aptly named Snowy Range (AKA the Snowies) and the Sierra Madres — both in Medicine Bow National Forest — have an annual snowfall of 25 feet of fluffy powder in open bowls and forested woods and hundreds of miles of mostly un-groomed trails.

A great destination to customize a snowmobile adventure, the trail system in the Big Horn Mountains is divided into north and south sections that connect for great multiple-day trips. Enjoy 342 miles of groomed trails and 49 miles of un-groomed trails.

CASPER MOUNTAIN

BLACK HILLS

On Casper Mountain, in the Laramie Range, you’ll find 46 miles of marked, groomed trails and seven miles of un­ groomed trails at elevations of more than 7,000 feet. This is serious snowmobiling — snow depths can reach three feet!

Sundance and Newcastle are the portals to these 40 miles of groomed trail in Northeast Wyoming, which connect to 295 miles of the Black Hills System in South Dakota. The area is marked by deep snow and the pine-blanketed mountains that give it its name.

BEAR LODGE MOUNTAINS

CONTINENTAL DIVIDE Ranked as the “American West’s No. 1 Best of the Best” snowmobiling trail by SnoWest magazine, this 270-mile route begins in Lander, traverses western Wyoming across Togwotee Pass and ends in Grand Teton National Park. Trailblazers revel in majestic views of the Tetons and experienced riders love heading off trail for challenging terrain. For more info, log on to wyotrails.state.wy.us/snow.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK An extension of the Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail, the trails of Yellowstone may be explored only with an authorized commercial guide. Several hundred snowmobilers are allowed each day, but since it’s such a popular spot, it’s advisable to make advance reservations. For a complete list of guides, head to nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/wintbusn.htm.

In the northern region of the state, the Bear Lodge Mountains offer a shorter system of trails that continuously loops smaller hills and several different valleys, reaching elevations of 5,000 to 7,000 feet. Riders hit the 78 miles of groomed trails from Sundance.

THE WYOMING RANGE The Wyoming Range, in the western part of the state, runs nearly 80 miles in a north-south direction. It offers hundreds of miles of groomed and un-groomed trails, many topping 10,000 feet in elevation, as well as a network of logging roads. Spend a few days in the area and hop from a cabin to a warming hut and back again. The town of Alpine makes a good base camp for exploring this trail, and you can access trailheads from Pinedale, Big Piney and LaBarge.

SNOWMOBILES, FOCUS PRODUCTIONS/WADE MCKOY.

Wyoming’s vast wilderness and variety of terrain have cemented its status as a snowmobiling haven, and you’ll find an extensive network of well-developed trails throughout multiple regions of the state. Besides exploring remote destinations, these trails also pass through local towns — essential pit stops for gas, grub and a good night’s sleep. All the essential amenities, from snowmobile rentals to guided tours, are available along the way. Read on for a quick look at some of Wyoming’s most beloved trails and regions.

A WINTER GUIDE TO WYOMING’S NATIONAL PARKS & MONUMENTS

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK THE SCENE: Otherworldly forests draped in white, steaming hot springs and geysers, and a sense of quietude make the park quite magical in winter, a season when only about three percent of its annual visitors venture to the park. THE ACTIVITIES: It’s safe to say that the biggest draw in winter is wildlife watching. Animals are much easier to spot against the snowy landscape, and in places such as Lamar Valley, called the “Little Serengeti of America,” you’ll have ample opportunity to see wolves, moose, bison, antelope, deer, coyotes and birds. A number of organized wildlife-watching tours make it possible to traverse the frozen landscape safely. Additionally, miles of terrain are open for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Dogsledding tours are another thrilling way to see the park, as is

snowmobiling, though a bit of planning is required since it is strictly regulated by the park.

frozen lakes make this area a winter recreation dream come true.

CONSIDERATIONS: Cars are not allowed in the park mid-November to mid-April, except on a limited stretch of road to Mammoth Hot Springs through the North Entrance. Visitors can enter the park through other entrances via scheduled snow coaches or on foot, snowshoes or skis. There are several authorized snowmobile and snow-coach guides near Yellowstone.

THE ACTIVITIES: A ranger-led snowshoeing trek can be a fun way for families to learn more about the park’s ecology, or you can venture up snowy trails on your own on snowshoes or cross-country skis to experience the peaceful, snow-muffled hush that falls across the Tetons in winter. Approved snowmobiles are allowed on Grassy Lake Road and Jackson Lake, the latter of which offers excellent ice fishing.

›› Find more information at nps.gov/yell.

GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK THE SCENE: The park’s jagged, granite mountains are even more dramatic when dusted in brilliant white snow; and at sunrise and sunset, the white peaks reflect a stunning range of colors. Plus, caches of deep snowy powder and

CONSIDERATIONS: The park’s main roadways, Hwy U.S. 89/191 and Hwy U.S. 26/287, are plowed and open for winter travel from Jackson to Flagg Ranch just south of Yellowstone National Park. Teton Park Road (Taggart Trailhead to Signal Mountain Lodge) is closed to vehicles but open to skiing and snowshoeing access. Be sure to be prepared with snow tires and an emergency kit when traveling the park in wintertime. ›› Find more information at nps.gov/grte.

DEVILS TOWER NATIONAL MONUMENT THE SCENE: Hundreds of parallel cracks create large hexagonal columns that give Devils Tower its unique geological appearance — and the textures are especially interesting when given a light dusting of snow. THE ACTIVITIES: Photographers come to the tower year-round to capture the mysterious formation, which becomes even more intriguing

60 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

WINTER REFUGES WITHIN THE PARKS In Yellowstone, two rather modest-but-cozy accommodations are available in winter: Old Faithful Snow Lodge & Cabins is accessible only by snow coach, and the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel & Cabins offers the only winter accommodations in the park that are accessible by car. Both hotels offer equipment rentals, guides and tours. In Grand Teton National Park, the lodgepole-furniture-decorated Dornans Spur Ranch Cabins
are located on the beautiful Snake River. Triangle X Ranch is the other option, a working dude ranch where you can relax next to a warm fire or in a large outdoor Jacuzzi. Because winter options are limited, they also fill up fast, so make reservations as early as possible.

amid a ghostly winter landscape — so bring your camera. Devils Tower is also a favorite rock-climbing destination, and sometimes mild winter conditions make for great, unspoiled climbing opportunities. Hikers, snowshoers and cross-country skiers will enjoy the serene trails near the monument. CONSIDERATIONS: The road to the picnic area and “Circle of Sacred Smoke” sculpture may not be open in the winter. ›› Find more information at nps.gov/deto.

Sure, the neighbors’ fridge is plastered with vacation pics of the Tetons blanketed in wildflowers, but have they ever seen steam ethereally rising off the back of a bison against a snowy field in Yellowstone? Few people know about the true charms of a winter getaway to Wyoming’s national parks and monuments — but that’s part of the glory. You’re more likely to have these majestic spots to yourself.

With no traffic or pollution, few people and wide-open skies, Northeast Wyoming will redefine your concept of fresh air. Dotting the spectacular landscape, you’ll find charming towns where 19th-century hotels, shops and restaurants still welcome travelers and outdoor recreation abounds. Acres of public land, sagebrush plains and rolling hills set the scene for trips ranging from family outings to solitary adventures. Towns such as Sheridan, Newcastle and Buffalo are brimming with Western history and charm. The Northeast is also rich in unspoiled natural wonders — Devils Tower and Black Hills National Forest are just the beginning. Begin your discovery at wyomingtourism.org.

This outpost in the middle of a rugged and secluded valley is the perfect mix of Old West style and modern ambiance. Beautiful homes line the streets, ranging in architectural style from Victorian to Flemish revival. Four golf courses are close to the city, and in wildflower season — June and July — flowers bloom in profusion in the nearby Cloud Peak Wilderness.

Mountain Festival in July brings a host of down-home bluegrass performers to Buffalo.

NEWCASTLE

After miles and miles of driving through open plains, visitors to Newcastle are greeted with the dark green forests of the Black Hills that encroach to the northeast. Stop for a bite to eat in one of the town’s old-fashioned diners or head to the hills to stretch your legs and play. The Black Hills National Forest offers ample opportunities for fishing, hunting, camping, hiking and mountain biking.

Biking in the Black Hills, fishing on Cook Lake, picnicking by the Belle Fourche River — these are just a few of the fresh-air-filled activities that the Sundance area offers. The tranquil town of Pine Haven is right next to Keyhole State Park and Reservoir, a great place for fishing, boating and winter snowmobiling. And, of course, the iconic Devils Tower National Monument is a world-famous tourist attraction.

DEVILS TOWER NATIONAL MONUMENT

Devils Tower National Monument, which looms more than 1,200 feet above Wyoming’s eastern plains and the Belle Fourche River, is a one-of-a-kind natural wonder. The flat-topped volcanic formation is found amid some of the state’s most beautiful country, leaving you plenty to do after you behold its otherworldly presence. HIKE

LEARN

Hike along eight miles of nature trails near the monument. The most popular trail is the 1.3-mile paved circuit around the massive rock formation, while others wind in and around the surrounding forest and meadowlands. April, May and June are popular with wildflower-lovers — nearly 60 varieties of wildflowers have been spotted in the area.

Visit during the summer for the National Park Service’s Summer Cultural Program to hear speakers on a variety of subjects. On select evenings, there’s also a Full Moon Walk that begins at dusk for hikers with flashlights.

TOUR Take a ranger-led tour of the monument. The easy 1.5-hour walk features topics that include geology, the area’s indigenous people, wildlife and more. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes and a water bottle.

?

FISH Look for black bullhead, channel catfish and the area’s famed walleye in the Belle Fourche. Be sure to check with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department for information on licensing and regulations. wgfd.wyo.gov

BOAT Go boating on nearby Keyhole Reservoir’s 14,000 wide-open acres and explore a few of its coves. Or, relax on its 50-plus miles of beautiful shoreline in Keyhole State Park. The marina can set you up with snacks, bait and tackle, fishing licenses and a public boat ramp.

SLEEP The popular 50-site Belle Fourche Campground is within the park itself (closed in winter), and several other campsites near the entrance offer superb views of the tower. There’s also the town of Hulett, where you’ll find several motels and restaurants just nine miles from the park.

CLIMB The tower’s sheer rock faces and hundreds of columns and cracks are a siren song for climbers. All climbers must register with park authorities and check in after their climb. In an effort to keep the monument healthy for millions of future visitors, the tower closes to climbers during the month of June. Local guides can help you with any equipment and instruction you require.

CHECK OUT THE DEVILS TOWER VISITOR CENTER Learn more about the tower’s geology as well as the culture and history of the area through historical photos and other displays before you set out to explore. Open year-round.

DISCOVER PIONEER

Most physical evidence of American pioneers’ westward treks has long since been erased. And, in an age of text messaging and ordering pizza with a click of a mouse, it can be a struggle to truly grasp what life was like for them. But in Central Wyoming, the land remains much as it was back then, complete with ruts in the earth left by their wagon wheels. Tour the region’s excellent museums and historic sites for a vivid glimpse into 19th-century frontier life. The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Casper should top any cultural itinerary in Central Wyoming. Exhibits in the museum realistically document the lives of both emigrants and Native Americans in the pioneer era and invite visitors to “experience history, don’t just read about it.” Round out your experience with a visit to the nearby Fort Caspar Museum, a reconstructed 1865 military post near several historic trails that boasts permanent exhibits on prehistoric cultures, Plains Indians, ranching, emigrant trails and the history of Casper.

72 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

Nowhere are the westward journeys of pioneers more palpably felt than at the Oregon Trail Ruts National Historic Landmark and Register Cliff State Historic Site, just east of Douglas, near Guernsey. The ruts — which are some of the best preserved on the Oregon Trail and cut several feet deep into the sandstone — were made by thousands of wagons on their way to South Pass, a valley that enabled emigrants to cross the Rockies. As emigrants traveled along the trail, they often marked their names and the dates of their journeys in certain places to signal to friends and family traveling later that they had made it that far. Register

?

Cliff, a sandstone precipice covered with names and dates, is one of the most prominent and is truly a captivating relic of pioneer times. Continue east of Guernsey to the town of Fort Laramie and Fort Laramie National Historic Site. Founded in 1834 by fur trappers and later stationed by troops, the fort was one of the most important in the West. Set at the confluence of the North Platte and Laramie rivers, the post provided emigrants with fresh water, provisions and protection. Today, 22 original structures stand, some of which are restored and open for tours.

DID YOU KNOW? The University of Wyoming’s mascot, the Cowboys, supposedly dates back to 1891, when a rough-n-tough cowboy helped out in a football game against the rival Cheyenne Soldiers. He took the field in a hat and cowboy shirt, enticing a distracting yell of “Hey, look at the Cowboy!” The university now has one of the most unique and recognizable logos in college athletics.

TIPS FOR FISHING THE MILE

THE MIRACLE MILE & BEYOND

In Central Wyoming, near Casper, the cool waters of the North Platte River murmur and glisten between wide, rocky banks, making adventure-hungry trout fishers practically salivate. That’s because the river boasts two legendary, blue-ribbon tail waters: The Miracle Mile and Grey Reef sections consistently produce trophy rainbows, browns and cutthroats. What sets these sections of the North Platte apart from other fishing destinations? “That tug on the line when a monster trout bites the hook. These trout are big, strong and will put up the fight of a lifetime,” says local angler Jeff McDonald. “Abundant food sources, little fishing pressure, cold and consistent water, and access to the lake below” create the ideal environment.

To make the most of a fishing excursion on “the Mile,” as it’s called, or the Grey Reef, consider contacting an outfitter or guide to take you out on the river. You can also visit fishcasper.com for fishing reports and information. Central Wyoming’s other two hot spots for fishing include the Alcova and Pathfinder Reservoirs. Massive walleye — called “the lobster of the Rockies” — as well as trout and carp, thrive in the reservoirs’ habitats. For those who enjoy lake fishing, these two scenic bodies of water present unparalleled opportunities to reel in the big one.

›› Because of its status as a spawning ground, be careful not to walk through the redds (spawning areas) or you could disturb or destroy the eggs.  he Mile is relatively remote. ›› T Bring everything you might need.  eather can be unpredictable. ›› W Dress in layers and bring waterproof outerwear.  hen wading, be careful not to ›› W slip on the algae-covered rocks on the riverbed.  ishing can be good virtually ›› F any time of year here, but is especially great when rainbows spawn in the spring and browns spawn in the fall.

The Legend of Devil’s Gate American Indian legend says a powerful evil spirit in the form of a tremendous beast with enormous tusks ravaged the Sweetwater Valley, preventing the Indians from hunting and camping. A holy man told the tribes that the Great Spirit wanted them to destroy the beast. The Indians launched an attack from the mountain passes and ravines, shooting countless arrows into the evil monster. Enraged, the beast with a mighty upward thrust of its tusks, ripped a gap in the mountain and disappeared, never to be seen again. — Robert L. Munkees in “Independence Rock and Devil’s Gate,” Annals of Wyoming, April 1968. Visit Devil’s Gate one hour southwest of Casper on WY-220.

Donell’s Candies, Inc. Wagons, Ho! “Growing up with Western television shows and novels, we decided to ‘Go West!’ on vacation and scheduled a wagon-train trail ride with a family-run business outside of Casper. Riding behind the covered wagon over the wide-open range stretching up to Casper Mountain, we watched the ‘prairie schooner’ rock violently, creaking and groaning as the mules pulled it over the uneven original trail ruts. Its rugged construction and design allowed it to flex without breaking.” — Roundup Blogger, Taylor Huff

Beauty in Emptiness

“I love Wyoming for many reasons, but the drive between Shoshoni and Casper on U.S. 20/26 solidified in my mind the state’s finest attribute: unencumbered space. Driving through it, I found myself bringing that boundlessness into my life. The landscape energized me. So much for that audio book.” — Roundup Blogger, Dina Mishev

DON’T MISS THE DADDY OF ’EM ALL

VISITOR SOUND BITES “I’ve been to rodeos before, but nothing has compared to the Daddy of ’Em All. From I-25 you can see the bright lights and colors of the carnival and the tops of the tipis in Indian Village. When you pull into the dusty parking lot, there are pickup trucks and horses occupying every other space — yes, horses have their own parking space. The midway is packed with fair-style food vendors selling funnel cakes topped with ice cream, smoked turkey legs and corn dogs. Once you smell it all, you won’t be able to resist. “ — Carrie Barker, Colorado “The faces, smells and sights — all indicative of a particular culture that I could immediately tell was something meaningful, and for those around me, heavily entwined with heritage. A culture I had never personally known, but suddenly desired to experience.” — Sarah Koo, California

elaborate silver belt buckles to huckleberry barbecue sauce, and even some late-night line dancing.

DAYTRIPS IN SOUTHEAST WYOMING

MEDICINE BOW NATIONAL FOREST

From Laramie: 1 hour, 30 min From Cheyenne: 2 hours Perhaps one of the best-kept secrets in the Southwest, Medicine Bow National Forest is arguably every bit as gorgeous as Grand Teton National Park — but less traveled, and therefore more pristine, with glacier-fed lakes, scenic overlooks, sparkling waterfalls and old mining camps. In the forest’s Snowy Mountain range, peaks rise to 12,000 feet and dip into 6,000-foot valleys, creating a dramatic landscape that will have you snapping away with your camera. Take a spectacular drive on the Snowy Range Scenic Byway (June through mid-November); admire the famously photogenic Lake Marie and Mirror Lake; or take advantage of the area’s outstanding winter recreation opportunities. Mountain bikers (and other recreation seekers) traveling between Cheyenne and Medicine Bow will want to make a stopover at the Curt Gowdy State Park.

Whether the curious structure was erected as a railroad PR tactic or a true tribute to the brothers is up for debate. The pyramid was designed by notable American architect Henry Hobson Richardson.

Timeless brick buildings line the sidewalks in Rawlins, the Western town that sprouted up around a 19th-century train stop. Browse railroad history at the Train Depot, see local artists at the Rawlins Main Street Gallery and shop for gifts in quaint boutiques. Don’t skip a stroll through downtown to view the 12 murals that tell the colorful history of Carbon County. Don’t miss the Wyoming Frontier Prison, the historic (and supposedly haunted) penitentiary three blocks off Main Street.

This historic downtown consists of just a couple of blocks chocked-full of antique retail stores and restaurants. Of particular interest are Lollypops — a quaint ice cream parlor decorated like a 1950s soda fountain — and Shively Hardware Company where, if you purchase rope, they still pull it up from the basement through a hole in the floor. Most stores still have their original storefronts and the shops that have chosen to renovate are voluntarily taking on an Old Western look.

From its boom-town roots, Laramie has flourished into a cultural center as the home of the University of Wyoming, but it still maintains its Old West spirit from the days when it was known as “The Gem City of the Plains.” Learn the stories of its lawless beginnings by picking up a walking tour brochure at the Main Street or Chamber of Commerce offices. Along your route, see the landmark Holiday Building, the historic Women’s History House and the beautifully ornate St. Matthew’s Church. Finally, wet your whistle at the infamous Buckhorn Bar on Ivinson Street, which has been serving customers since the 1930s.

Stop in at Black Hawk Gallery, where you will be welcomed with true Wyoming hospitality and can see artwork ranging from sculpted bronze pieces to Western oil paintings.

Wyoming Rocks “Well known by climbers, Vedauwoo is also great fun for those who are happy on the ground. The area provides several path options and you can choose exactly how much energy you want to expend. Many paths lead to fun nooks — and yes, crannies — as well as some spectacular views of the plains below.” — Roundup Blogger

Cheyenne Coffee Company Photographing History in the Streets of Cheyenne “Downtown Cheyenne swirls with dust on this sleepy Saturday afternoon. Dark clouds to the east mark the edge of some big prairie weather system. I’ve been walking the streets, photographing giant painted boots and historic buildings, but I duck into the Shadow Pub and Grill, in the old railroad depot, when the wind picks up and the light turns gray.” — Roundup Blogger, Joshua Berman

A Sunny Day in Lara mie Town

“I polled Wyoming’s Facebook friends to find out what the Laramie must sees were. Taking their advice, we started with lunch at Bernie’s. I don’t know who came up with the green chili dog, but I love him and pledge to him the eternal devotion of my taste buds. This culinary delight is a hot dog wrapped in a flour tortilla and fried very lightly before being smothered in chili.” — Roundup Blogger

Located approximately 26 miles northeast of Rock Springs, the White Mountain Petroglyphs are one of the state’s premier rock art sites. The site includes stone etchings of figures portraying bison and elk hunts, geometric forms and tiny footprints — all etched into the stone some 200 to 1,000 years ago.

When Horses Run Wild “We were so excited to drive the Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Loop Tour, which runs between Green River and Rock Springs. The 23-mile road offers access to beautifully barren land where herds of horses run wild. I have never been to a place where you can see so far in every direction. It was humbling.” — Roundup Blogger

Wind River Brewing Company Venturing Through Star Valley “We headed south to Star Valley after we left Jackson, and I’m telling you: Anyone who doesn’t venture this way is really missing out. In the space of 150 or so miles, we stopped in Alpine, Thayne and Afton, met so many welcoming people and saw an immeasurable amount of beautiful scenery. The area is so lush, with Hwy 89 snaking along the valley floor next to the Snake and Salt rivers for much of the drive.” — Roundup Blogger

Fossil Hunt

“It’s pretty hard to walk 100 yards from your car in Southwest Wyoming and not be able to find a fossil of some kind. It’s against the law to pick them up on federal land, but there are places where you can quarry fossil fish all day and keep them. It’s a great deal of fun cracking open a piece of shale and finding the imprint of a fish that is 50 million years old.” — Charlie Love, Professor of geology and anthropology at Western Wyoming Community College.

With two iconic national parks, scenery straight out of an adventure magazine and plenty of welcoming towns, the Northwest region offers vacation options ranging from rugged backcountry escapes to serene, luxurious retreats. You’ve probably heard about some of the famous sites here — the soothing hot springs of Thermopolis, the quintessential Western streets of Cody and the charming town of Jackson and its famous ski resorts — but Northwest Wyoming is packed with so many other treasures. Use this guide to start planning your trip, and visit us online at wyomingtourism.org for more tools and information.

NORTHWEST REGION OVERVIEW 5 1 3 JACKSON & TETON VILLAGE

Surrounded by scenic Jackson Hole and the majestic Tetons, this little metropolis lets you experience genuine cowboy culture on guest ranches, at rodeos and, of course, over drinks at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. In nearby Teton Village (at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort), you’ll find even more to explore while you soak up the incredible beauty of the area.

DUBOIS

6

CODY

A small Western town embraced by the Absaroka and Wind River mountains, Dubois offers trout-filled streams, dude ranches, rodeos and hiking trails. Somewhere comfortably between sleepy and bustling, its historic downtown has several bars that often have live music. Don’t miss the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center.

LANDER & RIVERTON

At the heart of the Wind River Basin, these two towns attract those looking to set up camp along the Popo Agie (pronounced pu-PO-juh) River. Visitors will find first-rate rock climbing, traditional American Indian culture and untouched wilderness areas. Sinks Canyon State Park, six miles southwest of Lander, contains a geological oddity involving a disappearing river.

WORLAND, GREYBULL, LOVELL & POWELL

Looking for pioneer history, friendly locals and outdoor adventures? You’ll find all that and more in these low-key towns set amid the desert badlands backdrop of the Bighorn Basin. With 1,000plus miles of hiking and horseback trails, golf courses and the Bighorn, Greybull and Shoshone rivers nearby, these towns make prime base camps for recreation. In summer, there’s almost always a festival or rodeo to enjoy.

THERMOPOLIS

Thermopolis is a wonderful place for both recreation and relaxation. Nearby rivers and canyons offer picturesque whitewater rafting and trout fishing, and archaeological digs are constantly turning up dinosaur bones in the red-hued mountains. At Hot Springs State Park — home to the largest mineral springs in the world — you’ll find picturesque boardwalks, calming hot-spring pools and several fun water parks.

Teeming with Wild West history and lore, Cody provides the perfect setting to get into the Forever West spirit. The town hosts renowned summertime events such as rodeos, shootouts, parades and powwows. A popular tourist spot and a gateway to Yellowstone National Park, Cody is named for Buffalo Bill Cody and is home to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. WyomingTourism.org

HEAVENLY

HOT SPRINGS For centuries, the hot springs of Wyoming have been revered attractions. Native Americans, even if they were from warring tribes, used to settle down shoulder-to-shoulder into hot springs along the banks of the North Platte River, where they believed the water had healing powers. The settlers traveling westward on the Oregon Trail also stopped along the way to soak their weary feet. Modern visitors still flock to the naturally heated pools and springs to relax and have some fun. Check out these popular soaking spots in Northwest Wyoming. HOT SPRINGS STATE PARK

GRANITE HOT SPRINGS

CHIEF WASHAKIE PLUNGE

In Thermopolis, Hot Springs State Park is the most visited park in the Wyoming State Park system. Families love the herd of buffalo wandering the park grounds and the Star Plunge pool with its waterslides, and couples migrate to the State Bathhouse. While the State Bathhouse has an indoor and outdoor soaking pool (both of which require bathers to wear swimsuits), it also has clothing-optional private tubs where, not only do you get the place to yourself, but you’re also the total supervisor of your soak, able to pick the water temperature you want. The park is open year-round and is especially lovely in the winter.

If you’re looking for a wilderness feel, head just south of Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. Granite’s waterfall-fed, 104-degree, seven-footdeep pool is tucked into the base of a cliff. Anyone can get to Granite between spring and fall by driving the 12-milelong dirt road, but only those willing to snowmobile, ski, snowshoe or dogsled in from the highway can soak here come winter. June through September, there is a campground open just a mile from the pool.

Venture onto the Wind River Indian Reservation near Lander to splash in this developed hot spring. The large outdoor pool is kept at a balmy 90 degrees and features a waterslide, basketball hoop and diving board. Nine indoor tubs offer Jacuzzi-like jets for a soothing soak. Don’t skip the gravel plunge that contains the natural vent, which releases 112degree water from the earth itself.

BEYOND YELLOWSTONE 10 GREAT HIKES IN NORTHWEST WYOMING

The abundance of great hiking trails in Yellowstone is a given, so we decided to look beyond the nation’s first national park for these 10 amazing trails in Northwest Wyoming. Listed in order by level of difficulty, these hikes range from a super-easy nature stroll to a strenuous overnight adventure.

1

POPO AGIE NATURE TRAIL: JUST A WALK IN THE PARK

Six miles outside of Lander at Sinks Canyon State Park, the Popo Agie River rushes through a canyon and then abruptly disappears into a cavern. Check out this phenomenon known as the “sinks” at the visitor center, then walk a quarter-mile trail to the “rise,” where the river reappears after flowing underground.

2 LLAMA TREKKING IN THE POPO AGIE WILDERNESS AREA OF THE WIND RIVER MOUNTAINS, JEFF VANUGA.

GOOSEBERRY BADLANDS SCENIC OVERLOOK TRAIL: A DESERT STROLL

Otherworldly rock formations rise from the desert soil (which changes color with the seasons) in every direction along this 1.5-mile interpretive trail 25 miles west of Worland. A scenic overlook provides a panoramic view of the colorful geologic oddities.

3

JADE LAKES: VERDANT ADVENTURE

The Jade Lakes Trail outside of Dubois is an easy four-mile round-trip hike to a pair of emerald-green lakes. After a half-mile trek up a steep hill, the trail evens out through gorgeous forestland until you reach Upper Jade Lake and the stratified volcanic cliffs towering over its shores. From there, Lower Jade Lake is another half-mile walk along slightly steeper terrain.

4

HERMITAGE POINT TRAIL: A LONG & WINDING ROAD

This 8.8-mile loop in Grand Teton National Park follows

a quiet peninsula on Jackson Lake through thick forest, rolling hills and sagebrush meadows, affording spectacular views of the lake and Mt. Moran. The flat terrain is not terribly taxing, and the loop can be completed in about four hours.

5

PAINT ROCK CANYON TRAIL: TEEMING WITH WILDLIFE About five miles from Hyattville, this trail offers great views of near-vertical limestone canyon walls and beautiful open meadows as it follows the Paint Rock Creek five miles up the canyon. Conifers, mountain mahogany and sagebrush surround the area, which is home to elk, mule deer, songbirds and raptors, and the creek itself is known as an excellent trout stream.

of Meeteetse in the Absaroka Range, this moderately challenging hike leads you across a number of switchbacks and through a massive old rockslide to an unspoiled alpine basin at the base of Chief Mountain.

6

8

This five-mile out-and-back trail outside of Powell in the Shoshone National Forest delivers impressive views from the start. Beginning at Beartooth Lake, which is flanked by the Beartooth Butte, this short but difficult trail leads you first to the pristine Beauty Lake and then to Crane Lake and surrounding alpine meadows.

This strenuous but rewarding trail just outside of Cody is about seven miles roundtrip. You won’t come close to clocking as much mileage as the mountain once did. During a period of turbulent geologic activity about 50 million years ago, what is now the top of Heart Mountain broke away from its range and sped 62 miles across Wyoming in less than 30 minutes. Today, the peak rests atop a base that is 250 million years its junior. Heart Mountain offers heart-pumping inclines that will earn you panoramic views of the Absaroka Mountains.

BEAUTY LAKE TRAIL: HARDEARNED VIEWS

7

MEADOW CREEK TRAIL: SERENE SOLITUDE

The views of Dundee Mountain, paired with almost guaranteed solitude, are worth the challenging drive to access this six-mile trail. Just outside

HEART MOUNTAIN TRAIL: HEART-PUMPING HIKE

9

LOST TWIN LAKES TRAIL: WILDERNESS RETREAT

Not far from Ten Sleep in the Cloud Peak Wilderness of Bighorn National Park, the moderately strenuous Lost Twin Lakes trail climbs 1,200 feet in just more than 10 miles. Winding through meadows and forests of lodgepole pine, the trail culminates with an impressive view of the massive vertical cliffs that rise from the far side of the lakes.

10

BUCKING MULE FALLS NATIONAL RECREATION TRAIL: WORTH A NIGHT IN A TENT

If you’re up for a two-day hike, this trail near Lovell in the Bighorn National Forest takes you through 11 miles of thick forests, wildflower-strewn meadows and some fairly steep terrain to the highly photogenic, 600-foot Bucking Mule Falls. The trail is one way, so it’s an 11-mile hike back out.

Simply Silent “Take an opportunity to experience real silence during your visit to Wyoming by camping at Grand Teton National Park. As dusks settles, the noise of the day will drift off and quiet will fill the air. On a clear night you can see the stars, and the stars behind the stars, and the stars behind those. Look long enough and you’ll realize the blackness of night is actually a dark grey of far away constellations that you’ve never noticed before. ” — Roundup Blogger

Wyoming Whiskey Off-the-Radar Adventure: Canoe Camping on Yellowstone Lake “This unique backcountry boat shuttle service grants you access to some of Yellowstone’s most remote, pristine sites. As anyone who has camped by boat knows, a canoe can carry a lot more steaks and gear than a backpack. ‘The Otter’ is a dropoff boat that can carry up to six passengers and their gear, and up to four canoes or kayaks to shoreline destinations otherwise too far to paddle to.” — Roundup Blogger, Joshua Berman Call the operator at 307-242-3893 for more information.

Must-Visit Restaurant

“It’s said that you can’t go wrong when you eat where the locals eat, and it’s true. We had the best meal of our trip in the Rendezvous Bistro. It started with a variation on FrenchCanadian poutine with a fried egg on top and continued with exotic offerings including fresh calamari and oysters, curry and a tender fresh fish of the day. The Rendezvous Bistro is a must-visit for any self-respecting foodie that visits Jackson.” — Roundup Blogger, Matt Gibson

We Weren’t tourists We Were expLorers!

The destination was Yellowstone, but you know what they say - “it’s about the journey.” Those words rang true when we arrived in Wind River Country. We watched bucking broncs churn up the dirt at the rodeo. The colors swirled as we witnessed Native Americans dance at a pow wow. We had miles of trails and panoramic scenery to ourselves. Our hearts raced a little as we panned for gold. Wind River Country transported us back to the days of pioneers and to the West that lives in legends.

Take the easiest, most scenic route to Wind River Country on Hwy. 287/26 Dubois • Hudson • Lander • Riverton • Shoshoni • Wind River Indian Reservation


Lander

We rumbled over mountain bike trails and made our way up the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous rock faces. Hiking the trail to the thundering Popo Agie Falls was exhilarating. We explored Sinks Canyon and pondered the mysterious disappearing river. Our imaginations ran wild in South Pass City where we panned for gold and wandered through the old saloon, jail and mercantile. LanderChamber.org

dubois

We felt like real cowboys at a dude ranch. We watched iconic bighorn sheep. We strolled the boardwalk in town and even tried square dancing. At the rodeo we cheered on the local cowboys as bulls flung them from their backs. And of course we took a picture on the giant jackalope. DuboisWyomingChamber.org or DuboisWyoming.org

riverton

We danced with Native Americans at the Northern Arapaho Experience and mountain men taught us how to throw a tomahawk at the 1838 Rendezvous site. We learned about Native American cultures and the history of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exploration. Then we spent the evening at a Vegas-style casino hoping to win enough to fund the trip back to Wind River Country we were already planning. RivertonChamber.org

ONE LAST LOOK

three daughters. Pickett isn’t especially remarkable except for his honesty and for a quality that Harold Bloom attributes to Shakespeare — the ability to think everything through for himself.” I still like that. I’ve been surprised and gratified how the character of Joe Pickett has resonated with readers across the country and around the world.

Q

What was it like to grow up in Wyoming and how has that influenced your writing? C.J. Box: Growing up, I always tried to read anything I could get my hands on that was set in Wyoming or about Wyoming. Although sometimes beautifully written, I could rarely recognize the state when I read most of the books. The authors, it seemed, had passed through, come here on vacation or just moved to Jackson Hole. The Wyoming they portrayed wasn’t the Wyoming I knew. So even though I had no idea I’d write so many novels about a Wyoming game warden, I made a determination early on to write about the state from the inside out and to portray characters and issues as I saw them.

Q

What’s your Wyoming bucket list for visitors? C.J. Box: For a first-time visitor, I’d include Yellowstone (of course), Grand Teton, Jackson Hole, Cheyenne Frontier Days, Devils Tower, Cody, Sheridan, Saratoga, the Bighorn Mountains and the Wind River Range. That ought to keep ’em busy for a while.

Q

What do you think the biggest misconception of Wyoming is? C.J. Box: That it’s encased in ice and snow in the winter and that residents are rural and backward. Both are untrue.

WYOMING’S C.J. BOX

New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box is a Wyoming native with a gift for storytelling. The popular Joe Pickett novel series follows the fictional Wyoming game warden. Learn more about the series at cjbox.net.

Q

How did the concept of Joe Pickett come about? C.J. Box: When I think of Joe Pickett, I don’t think of an action hero, or a smooth operator or an actor. I always picture him as he is: a Western archetype — briefly described in the novels only as “lean and of medium height” — alone in his pickup truck, accompanied by his dog or perhaps his sidekick Nate Romanowski, perched on a mountain under a huge blue sky, contemplating hundreds of miles of raw Wyoming landscape laid out in front of him. About Joe, the New York Times once wrote, “…Box introduced us to his unlikely hero, a game warden named Joe Pickett, a decent man who lives paycheck to paycheck and who is deeply fond of his wife and his

154 | Wyoming Official Travelers Journal

How can readers experience Joe Pickett’s world while visiting Wyoming? C.J. Box: Many of the novels take place in actual locations, such as Yellowstone (Free Fire, Back of Beyond), Jackson (Out of Range) and Baggs (Nowhere to Run). The fictional town of Saddlestring where Joe lives is a combination of Sheridan, Buffalo and Saratoga. Towns and locations including Cody, Laramie, Cheyenne, Lusk, Newscastle, Jeffrey City, Chugwater, Casper, Wheatland, Riverton, Lander, Rawlins and Rock Springs have been featured in different novels.

Q

How do you come up with the names of your characters? C.J. Box: I’ve named characters after rodeo cowboys, friends, relatives and high bidders at Wyoming fundraising events who want to have their name in a novel. I take pains not to make the fictional character similar to the real person. The only thing they have in common is the same name.

Q

What can we expect from you in 2014? C.J. Box: The 14th Joe Pickett novel, called Stone Cold, will be out in March 2014. There will also be a short-story collection called Shots Fired at the end of the year. C.J. BOX
