Wyoming's nature is untouched and beautiful. Experience
water-spewing geysers, fascinating grizzly bears and snow-capped
mountains. The US state of Wyoming is located in the US
Midwest. The name means "Great Plains" and originally comes from
the language of the Algonkin Indians. These eponymous plains,
the Great Plains, extend across much of the state to the Rocky
Mountains in the west. Although roughly the size of Great
Britain, Wyoming has just under 600,000 people, which is why
visitors will find almost untouched nature there.
In order to be able to reach all sights of this very extensive
state, motorhome and rental car tours are recommended. The
absolute highlight of any stay in Wyoming is a visit
to Yellowstone National Park. Founded in 1872 as the first
national park in the world, it is still one of the most popular
excursion destinations today. Numerous natural spectacles await
visitors on an area of almost 9,000 square
kilometers. Particularly impressive are the hot springs, many of
which emit water, such as the Geysers Castle or Old
Faithful. In Yellowstone National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage
Site, there are also numerous bison, grizzly bears and
moose. South of it, the Grand Teton National Park with its peaks
up to 4200 meters high offers a unique backdrop and great
opportunities for camping, hiking, mountain biking and
climbing. Jackson, 8 km further south, offers a real western
atmosphere. Famous are the elk shovel arches in Town Square and
the million dollar cowboy bar, where you can drink your whiskey
instead of conventional bar stools on western saddles. With its
perfectly developed slopes, the demanding ski area and the
famous powder snow, Jackson Hole is also an absolute highlight
for ski enthusiasts. Wyoming is also known as the Cowboy State
because the legacy of the old Wild West is still held up
here. Visit one of the many ranches in the middle of the prairie
landscape and feel this special way of life and this attitude to
life up close.
