These 12 Photos Of Wyoming In The 1970s Are Mesmerizing

The 70s were an interesting decade, especially for Wyoming, who was being impacted by the energy boom. Wyoming’s economy became extremely dependent on natural resources such as coal, oil, and natural gas due mostly in part to the national energy crisis. This energy crisis led to a search for alternate resources and Wyoming, because of its geological formations, became a great source for these resources. Not only was the economy dependent on minerals but it also was built around agriculture, mostly livestock, and tourism. Wyoming saw a real growth in population as the 70s progressed. Here are some photos of Wyoming from this decade.

What memories do you have of Wyoming from the 70s?
