Wyoming has the lowest population of any U.S. state. In fact, with only about six people per square mile, there are more pronghorn antelope and deer than human residents. It is a place of unspoiled mountain vistas and vast forested wilderness, home of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Wyoming is also one of the few remaining parts of the United States where the West is indeed still wild. Stay at an authentic dude ranch, soak in hot springs, experience the thrill of a rodeo or fish in the crystal-clear streams.
