The Overnight Adventure In Wyoming That Will Take You Back In Time

One hundred and fifty years ago, 500,000 people joined wagon trails and forged their way across Native American lands, looking for a better life for themselves out west. The Oregon, Mormon and other emigrant trails were places of heartache and struggle, but also of unmatched freedom. Pioneers got to experience stunning, open and untouched lands, learning about themselves on the way as they learned about their new country.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
