The One Place In Wyoming That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

Tolkien’s realm of fantasy doesn’t have to be experienced just from the pages of a book. It can be experienced right here in Wyoming because this very unique landscape looks like something from Middle Earth. Middle Earth, according to Tolkien, is our own earth placed back in a mythical era. Middle Earth is well represented right here in our very own Wind River Range. Here, you will find a few mortal souls and probably a few other strange creatures.
