The state of Wyoming sits at the hub where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. The Continental Divide runs north to south through the center of the state, separating the mountainous western half from the plains of the eastern portion. Almost half of Wyoming’s land is owned by the United States government with much of these lands being protected as national parks and recreation areas.
To the west, the Grand Teton National Park features an almost pristine ecosystem and is a popular place for hiking, camping and world-famous trout fishing. Internationally famous Yellowstone National Park sits in the northern corner of Wisconsin and is home to amazing wildlife, forests and geothermal features.
