General Information

Description - This is a generally arid region apart from mountainous areas around Laramie. There are, however, several hidden treasures in this region.

Attractions - This is a generally arid region apart from mountainous areas around Laramie. The Medicine Bow Mountains and Laramie Mountains rise out of the sagebrush flats that cover much of the region. These mountains are encompassed in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest. A large portion of Flaming Gorge Reservoir is located in this region, south of the town of Green River. Much of the region is public, administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Recreation - Most of the outdoor recreation in this region focuses around the mountains and reservoirs. Some of the most popular activities include hiking, backpacking, camping, hunting, fishing, horseback riding, boating, water skiing, 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 - This region encompasses the southern quarter of the state. It includes Cheyenne, Laramie, Rawlins, and Rock Springs. Interstate 80 leads through the middle of the region.
