Tom Horn

Tom Horn is one of those real-life legendary Wonders of early Wyoming. He came to Wyoming in the 1890's, which was a turbulent time in the state's history. It was truly the Wild West in those days, when Wyoming achieved Statehood. And in those years immediately following, Wyoming was beset with range wars and outlaws. Tom Horn was very much involved with both.

Vedauwoo

This is one of the most interesting "rock collections" in the world, and certainly one of the oldest piles of granite boulders anywhere. The ancient rock at Vedauwoo dates back a million years, formed by the eons of water and constant weather. And it's here, at the northern finger of the Rocky Mountains, in Albany County, Wyoming, where the rocks form the majestic mountaintop scene that is Vedauwoo.

Pumpkin Buttes

 

The Indians called the buttes "wagamu paha", meaning gourd hills. The Sioux used the site for tribal ceremonies, and put Pumpkin Buttes to good use as a perfect lookout during battles with settlers along the Bozeman Trail. There are hundreds of tipi rings on and around the buttes that prove that Native Americans lived and worshipped here for centuries.

Tree Rock

This amazing little pre-historic Wonder just might be the most-viewed of all Wonders of Wyoming. Tree Rock is located on Interstate 80, and I mean in the median, smack-dab in the middle of the Interstate. It lies on a stretch of I-80 between Cheyenne and Laramie, in southeast Wyoming. Imagine the number of travelers that pass by Tree Rock each day. There's a very unusual median turnout that allows for motorists to stop and take pictures or just marvel at the tree that grows out of a boulder of pre-historic rock.

Sage Grouse

There's a reason why Wyoming has the largest concentration of Sage Grouse on the planet. It's all about the sagebrush, and there is plenty of that dietary staple of the Sage Grouse, right here in the Cowboy State. They are commonly called sage hens, or sage chicken, but it's the Sage Grouse that we're talking about here.

Francis E. Warren

The Francis E. Warren Air Force Base, on the western outskirts of Cheyenne, Wyoming, bears his name. Of course the famous base actually kept the name of Fort Warren, which was once Fort Russell. Fort Russell was re-named Fort Warren in 1929, upon the passing of Francis E. Warren. And Warren Air Force Base became Warren Air Force base in 1947.

The University of Wyoming

It's known by many as simply, "U-Dub". And from its very beginning this great place has been a source of Wyoming pride and joy. The University of Wyoming is the Cowboy State's only baccalaureate-granting institution of higher learning. And UW is unique in that Wyoming is the only state in the Union with just one 4-year college.
