I, Zeb the Duck, and Soapy Smith Duck, visited Wyoming. We went a few weeks ago, before the heavy snow came. We drove north on I-25 and stopped at the Wyoming Welcome Center.
You have to visit this place.
This sculpture by Stan Dolega is in the picnic area.
This painting reminds us that Wyoming is a cowboy state.
In the main part of the building the display, Source of Beauty,
changes to highlight some of Wyoming’s natural beauty. Here is Devil’s Tower.
I told you about Devil’s Tower in September, 2013. This welcome center is similar to a museum. Many early settlers arrived by covered wagons.
Others came by railroad.
The railroad also brought supplies to Wyoming. However, all that came were not nice people. We are in jail here with “the kid”.
But we, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, are nice and we were able to leave the jail. When the pioneers and early settlers arrived, the Native American Indians lived in tepees.
We like to sit in the tepee, but not for too long.
Wyoming has many outdoor activities. The winter sports include skiing and snowboarding.
This looks like fun. We really liked this snowmobile.
Let’s go mom! Summer sports include hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking.
Wyoming has so much to do all year.
Wyoming also had earlier settlers. Herds of Columbian Mammoths roamed Wyoming 11,000 to 200,000 years ago. These bones show you just how big these guys were.
This welcome center has everything. The restrooms were very clean, the staff friendly and knowledgeable and there are many brochures for you. You can learn so much about Wyoming that you could be a tourist here for years. When you visit Wyoming, stop at this welcome center first. It is on I-25 exit 4. You will be amazed by all the things to see.
