General Information

Description - This region includes several spectacular mountain ranges as well as vast areas of high desert.

Attractions - Much of the Absaroka Range, as well as the east slope of the Wind River Range is encompassed within the Shoshone National Forest. Elevations on the Shoshone range from 4,600 feet at the mouth of the spectacular Clarks Fork Canyon to 13,804 feet atop Gannett Peak, Wyoming's highest. A small portion of the Medicine Bow National Forest juts into this region in the Laramie Mountains.

Recreation - Much of the recreation in this region is focused in the mountains of the western end of the region. Some of the most popular activities include hiking, backpacking, camping, hunting, fishing, horseback riding, rafting, kayaking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.

Climate - As throughout the Rocky Mountains, the climate varies drastically depending on elevation. Summers generally offer warm clear days with cool nights. Afternoon thunderstorms are often a possibility in the summer. In the winter, sunshine, with plenty of snow in the higher elevations, are ideal for winter activities. Harsh weather - including wind, cold, and snow - is possible throughout the winter and even throughout the year, in the highest elevations.

Location - The region we are calling Central Wyoming stretches from the Absaroka and Wind River Ranges in the west, to the South Dakota/Nebraska border in the east. It includes the towns of Dubois, Lander, Casper, and Douglas.
