Wyoming Is Home To The Largest Living Dune System In America And It’s Incredible
A desert is not the first thing that crosses your mind when you think of Wyoming. However, it not only exists but it thrives in the south central portion of the state. This desert, known as the Red Desert, is home to some pretty incredible natural features such as the Great Divide Basin, a unique endorheic basin and Killpecker Sand Dunes.
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
