The heart of the Old West still beats in Wyoming. It's the place all your cowboy dreams come true. The winds carry tumbleweeds across red canyons; Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid escaped from pursuing lawmen here and wild horses run free through sagebrush on high, desert plateaus. On ranch holidays, you can work cattle during the day, then kick back and gaze up at the starry night sky. Or, watch real cowboys compete in exciting rodeo events throughout the dusty months of summer. The capital city, Cheyenne, is home to the largest outdoor rodeo in the world, Cheyenne Frontier Days, during the last week of July.
Explore forts built to protect early settlers. Visit historic trails - Oregon, California, Mormon, Bozeman, Bridger, Overland, Chief Washakie and Pony Express. See the wide open spaces and sense the presence of ancient tribal cultures at Devils Tower, the natural monolith that rises high above the plains of the Black Hills. Overnight in Yellowstone National Park and watch Old Faithful geyser erupt. View the jagged peaks of the Teton Mountains and walk the wooden sidewalks of Jackson Hole's historic Town Square. Visit the Buffalo Bill Historical Center's five museums and galleries in Cody, the town that Buffalo Bill Cody founded. Wyoming, is forever West.
