    When we left Jackson

    by 807Wheaton Written Jul 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We didn't see any bear or moose while we were in Jackson Hole area or the Tetons.
    We decided to hop back on Highway 89 for Yellowstone and leave these two at the Wagon Wheel Village.
    The rest of this trip is on the Yellowstone Page.

    Legal Fireworks

    by KaiM Updated Aug 30, 2004

    In some state local laws allow selling fireworks, some states don't give permission to fireworks trade. In Wyoming you can buy fireworks. The result are shops located out of town for safety reasons and preferably close to the state border to attract costumers from other states.

    Bison on a flag

    by KaiM Updated Aug 30, 2004

    A bison on a blue field bordered in white and red. The state seal branded on the bison. The woman represents the state motto "Equal Rights" and the two men represent cattle ranchers and miners. The words "Livestock", "Mines", "Grains" and "Oil" represent Wyoming's wealth. The eagle and shield show support for the United States. The dates 1869 and 1890 tell when Wyoming organized as a territory of the United States and when it became a state.

    Cheyenne Frontier Days

    by KaiM Written Jan 5, 2004

    Of course the Cowboy State has a long tradition in rodeos. One of the most famous rodeo events in the US are the annual Cheyenne Frontier Days. 40 bucking bulls, 70 wild horses - that is more than at any other rodeo. Steer wrestling, bull riding, bronc riding, horse racing, calf roping. Each of the events is performed during each of the nine days of rodeos. Usually the event takes place in July. Beside the sports events famous country musicians perform on-stage and at night the bars of the town are packed.

    -When we go up into the mountains we don't say, 'We are going to the Bighorn Mountains.' We say, 'We are heading up the mountain.' Everyone knows if your already near the foot of the Bighorns that's the mountain range your going to visit.

    -we walk up the 'side hill' vs. up the hill.

    -we don't have 'side ditches' we have 'borrow pits.' we borrowed dirt from there for the road...

    Never bite off more than you can chew. Wyoming is a large state so be sure to plan your trip wisely. The big things to see in Wyoming is: Yellowstone (northwest), Cheyenne Frontier Days (in the southeastern part of the state), etc. In the Northwestern part of the state the flyfishing is outstanding. It took me a half an hour to land this monster. It was caught just outside of Jackson Hole in a blue ribbon trout stream, and fed at least 6 people. Devine!

    Entrance to the park costed in 1996 $10 per vehicle and $4 per person.

    The entrance permit was good for seven consecutive days in Yellowstone and Teton National Parks.

    by pollon Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yellowstone is a hiker's paradise and trails range from easy hour walks across gentle terrain to strenous multi-day hikes in remote country.

    But always remember that the park is a sanctuary: natural and historical features are fully protected.

    And learn about the backcountry before leaving the trailhead. Park staff and ranger are the best source.

    Careless walking is not only dangerous but also destructive.

    I know I'm a pain in the neck saying this but I'm one of those boring nature lovers ;-)

    Roadside Wildlife

    by KaiM Updated Aug 30, 2004

    Almost everywhere in the state you should watch for animals while driving on a highway. Elks, deers and other animals are common sights close to the roads - or even on the roads.
