EXPLORE WYOMING!
Wyoming became a U.S. territory in 1868 and became the 44th U.S. state on July 10, 1890. It was the first state to grant women the right to vote, in 1869. The western two-thirds of the state is mostly the mountain ranges and rangelands of the Rocky Mountains, and the eastern third of the state is high elevation prairie, the High Plains. Almost half of the land in Wyoming is owned by the U.S. government. Wyoming is home to 11 National Park Units.

In addition, there are 12 State Parks and 25 State Historic Sites. There are 5 National Forests, 7 National Wildlife Refuges, and 2 Wild & Scenic Rivers. There are 55 places listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 27 National Historic Landmarks, 6 National Natural Landmarks, and 1 World Heritage Site.

“In the far and mighty West, Where the crimson sun seeks rest, There’s a growing splendid state that lies above, On the breast of this great land; Where the massive Rockies stand, There’s Wyoming young and strong, the State I love!” Judge Charles Edwin Winter wrote the words, and Earle R. Clemens wrote the music.
