As you drive through Wyoming's vast wilderness, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time to America’s pioneering era. Wyoming is America’s least populated state, and may lack glitzy cities but it offers plenty of breathtaking natural beauty. The Teton Mountain Range is the backbone of the state, and come winter, they offer world-class skiing at resorts like Jackson Hole. Scattered throughout the state, you’ll also find glacial lakes, sacred Native American sites, and ancient forests. Most people come to Wyoming for Yellowstone National Park. Encompassing an enormous 3,500 square miles, you can hike through dramatic canyons, canoe on rushing rivers, or take advantage of natural hot springs like America’s largest Grand Prismatic Springs. See the many geysers spread throughout the park but the most iconic is Old Faithful, famous for shooting hot water 106 to 185 feet into the air roughly every 44 minutes. During your stay, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like grizzly bears, wolves, and bison. Travel east to Montana, and explore the ice-carved landscape at the renowned Glacier National Park, fly fish in glorious rivers and lakes, or hike the Continental Divide. Luxury ski resorts are also a huge draw for visitors to this state, with the Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort and Big Sky Ski Resort promising plenty of pristine powder.
