They say its beauty is like no other, and you fall in love with its people.

Wyoming, it is like no place on earth. Within its boundaries is America's first and largest national park, Yellowstone. The unbounding beauty there includes "Old Faithful" geyser and Yellowstone Lake, the world's largest high-mountain lake. There is Yellowstone Falls, so awe-inspiring, it'll take your breath away. There are over 260 different species of animals and birds located there.

With hundreds of miles of blue-ribbon trout-stream fishing and various wildlife species, Wyoming appeals to sportsmen, as well.

Wyoming's wonders seem to be unending. There is Grand Teton National Park, whose centerpiece is the spectacular Teton Mountain Range. There is Devil's Tower, America's first national monument. There is the world's largest mineral hot springs located in Thermopolis. There is the beauty of Ten Sleep Canyon and a hundred other places.

For breathtaking beauty, Wyoming is unmatched. Its reputation brings millions of visitors to its borders each year. Plus, some of the best skiing in America can be found in Wyoming. Tourists and sportsmen can't wait to get here to enjoy the clean mountain air and limitless outdoor attractions.

The history of the great American West can be heard whistling through the trees of Wyoming. Wyoming has an historic place in the taming of the West in the late 1800's. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were two of Wyoming's most famous citizens during the era of lawlessness. There remain plenty of reminders of an age that will live forever in American lore.

People are Wyoming's strongest resource. These folks are down to earth, friendly and helpful. And, oh how proud they are of their Cowboys. Wyoming has some of the best fans in America. As their only four-year university, Wyoming folks are tremendously supportive of their teams.

Yet, as down to earth as they are, many Wyomingites are on the cutting edge of politics, entertainment and business. Among some of the most famous are: Vice President of the United States Dick Cheney; Dr. Jerry Buss, owner of the Los Angeles Lakers; Dean Conger, former chief photographer of the National Geographic Society; Curt Gowdy, the most decorated national sportscaster in history; Al Simpson, former United States Senator; Gerry Spence, attorney and television personality; and General Pete Schoomaker, U.S. Army Chief of Staff.

For great people, great scenery and a great education, there is no place quite like Wyoming.
