This is not how we thought of Wyoming - 3 million acres of rolling grassland! Driving through on our way to South Dakota, we enjoyed the different type of scenery than we had been seeing in other parts of the state. Lots of antelope and...More

Driving through here is amazing...all that grass, and all that open space. It has to be a huge surprise for anyone who hasn't lived in Wyoming before.
