The Remarkable Bridge In Wyoming That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once

Wyoming is a beautiful state that’s home to some of the most unique geography in the world. One place, in particular, the Ayers Bridge, is so remarkable that emigrants making their two thousand mile journey along the Oregon Trail would take the time to stop and visit! Today, the Ayers Natural Bridge area has been turned into a park that offers walking paths, scenic views, trails, and a picture-perfect picnic pavilion. Visit in the fall to see foliage at its best, before winter turns Wyoming into a snowy white wonderland.
