Wyoming is a state in the Western United States. The majority of the state is dominated by the mountain ranges and rangelands of the Rocky Mountain West, while the easternmost section of the state includes part of a high elevation prairie region known as the High Plains.
Wyoming is extremely rural and the least populated US state. Vast expanses of uninhabited land separate many of even the smallest towns, while the largest of cities in Wyoming (such as Cheyenne and Casper) would be considered small towns in many other states. Wyoming offers a wealth of outdoor recreation and sightseeing opportunities among its many world famous mountain ranges and national parks.
