Wyoming mapNews of Wyoming geysers and hots springs was first brought back to civilization when fur trapper John Colter explored the region in 1807.

From its first discovery in the 1800's to the present day, Wyoming has evoked the wonder and excitement of the Old West. With its wide open plains and spectacular Rocky Mountain scenery, Wyoming's major tourist attractions include Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole in Cheyenne, where the annual Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo is a big draw in July.

Other notable tourist & vacation spots are Flaming Gorge, the Fort Laramie National Historic Site, and Devils Tower.
