Legends of the Cowboy State

Wyoming has everything from open grasslands to the spectacular scenery of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park. Visit the Shoshone National Forest or the Eastern Great Plains. No matter where you go, this large state is beautiful and breathtaking.

In addition to Wyoming's beautiful scenery, the state gives you a broad opportunity to explore history dating back to prehistoric roaming tribes almost 12,000 years ago. From the nomadic Indians to the days of the Old West, Wyoming provides an rich experience of scenic trails, military forts, and a number of ghost towns that dot the landscape.

Travel the path of historic miners, cowboys and frontier pioneers as you explore the state's natural wonders, view its abundant wildlife, and visit its many national forest and state parks.

Enjoy your travels in Wyoming and welcome to the Legends of the Cowboy State.

The woman represents the state motto "Equal Rights" and the two men represent cattle ranchers and miners. The words "Livestock", "Mines", "Grains" and "Oil" represent Wyoming's wealth. The eagle and shield show support for the United States. The dates 1869 and 1890 tell when Wyoming organized as a territory of the United States and when it became a state.
