Another sparsely populated state, second only to Alaska, the state with the least number of people living there, Wyoming has about 580,000 individuals living within its 97,800 square miles. That averages out to 5.9 humans per square mile. Some towns have 100 miles between them. Often drives to doctor’s appointments, grocery stores and hair salons take two or more hours. Getting in touch with the environment might be easier than talking to your neighbor over the fence.
To some that means exploring the grandeur of Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton National Park. To others attending a rodeo in Jackson Hole or Cody, soaking in the Saratoga or Polecat Hot Springs or stopping to view wildlife describes their idea of adventure. Deer, elk, moose, Pronghorn Antelope, Black Bears and Mountain Lions roam throughout the Big Horn Mountains region near the town of Buffalo.
From Buffalo as it is anywhere in the Cowboy State, the journey to skiing, boating, camping, guest ranches, lakes, streams and mountains is worth the trek. And there’s always fresh air and starry nights.
As the state with the second highest elevation in the U.S., Wyoming skews to the dry side when it comes to precipitation. Fall moves in with some snow and cool temperatures and in the heart of winter (January) temperatures averages a high of 20 degrees F. Some areas only receive five inches of rain all year. Statewide the average temperature in July is around 60 degrees F. That’s good weather for an old-fashioned chuck-wagon dinner at one of the many area ranches on a Saturday night.
Weekdays are normally spent earning a paycheck while mining oil, gas or coal; working for local or state government, selling real estate, manufacturing or performing logistics. The Veteran Affairs Newcastle Clinic, University of Wyoming in Laramie, Natrona County School District in Casper, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and U.S. Air National Guard, both in Cheyenne employ the most people in the state.
Residents, employed or not, don’t pay individual income tax or estate tax and sales tax is only 4 percent. Besides these savings, subsidized higher education goes to students attending the University of Wyoming or any of the state’s community colleges.
Only two escalators exist in the entire state. Both of them are located inside banks in the town of Casper. You won’t find any shopping malls, either.
