Discover Southeast Wyoming
Southeast Wyoming boasts remarkable scenic places, recreational opportunities, and the vibrant culture that accompanies university life in a cozy mountain town. West of Laramie, the Snowy Range of the Rocky Mountains provides a dramatic contrast to Wyoming's high plains and vast open spaces and offers a perfect venue for activities such as hiking, camping, and fly fishing. Fifteen minutes to the east is Vedauwoo Recreational Area, part of the Medicine Bow National Forest and the Laramie Range, distinguished by striking granite formations and exceptional rock climbing, mountain biking, and trail running opportunities. During the winter, skiers enjoy the groomed trails trails at the nearby Happy Jack Recreation Area.
In total, Wyoming boasts four national forests and two of the nation's most spectacular national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. So for most Wyomingites, the environment is more than a place to live--it's a way of life. Vast deposits of coal, natural gas formations, oil fields, trona deposits and other mineral resources form the basis of the state's economy. Rivers and lakes are the lifeblood of our agricultural industry. Mountains, forests, parks, streams, and western culture sustain our internationally-renowned tourism.
In this distinctive place, University of Wyoming faculty and students are responding to the challenge of how to enjoy the benefits of these natural resources while preserving our environment for future generations. As a natural laboratory, we think this location is paramount. Join us here soon.
