Description - Wyoming has been broken into four travel regions: Northern Wyoming, Central Wyoming, Southern Wyoming and Yellowstone/Western Wyoming.
- Northern Wyoming offers the forests, mountains and wilderness areas just east of Yellowstone National Park, the Bighorn Mountains and National Forest, and Devils Tower National Monument. Highlights of Central Wyoming include the Absaroka Range, the east slope of the Wind River Range and the Shoshone National Forest. Southern Wyoming includes the Medicine Bow and Laramie Mountains as well as Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Yellowstone/Western Wyoming includes Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks as well as Jackson Hole, the west slope of the Wind River Range and the headwaters of the Snake and Green Rivers.
Recreation - Recreation in these regions ranges from touring the popular Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks to backpacking through some of the most isolated regions in the lower 48 states. Other popular outdoor recreation activities include camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, mountain biking, mountain climbing, rafting, kayaking, boating, snowmobiling, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding.
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 heavy 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.
