What underrated places in Wyoming should I visit?
One of the most underrated spots you can visit in Wyoming is actually the state's very first "roadside" attraction. The Ayres Natural Bridge was a stopping point along the Oregon Trail, once immigrants realized how neat this natural wonder was. Another beautiful and underrated spot in Wyoming is Lake Helen in the Cloud Peak Wilderness. If you love overlooks, stop to see the Salt River Pass near Hoback Junction and you can practically look back in time and spot the Oregon Trail wagon pathways from above
Where is the creepiest town in Wyoming?
