Welcome To Wyoming

Wyoming embodies the spirit of the American West. A place all at once wild, untamed, and progressive. The name Wyoming was adopted from two Delaware Indian words, MECHEWEAMI-ING. To the Indians it meant "at the big plains," or "on the great plain," certainly appropriate for this state of vast open spaces.

The Cowboy State is a beautiful place to call home and live out your western dream.

Wyoming’s Economy

The mineral extraction industry and travel & tourism drive the majority of Wyoming’s economy. The state is incredibly tax-firendly, with no individual or corporate income tax. The unemplyment rate typically is much lower than the national average.

Millions visit Wyoming’s national parks and monuments each year, including Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Devil’s Tower National Monument, and Fossil Butte National Monument.

Wyoming ranks highest in the United States in mining production. The state’s abundant mineral commodities include coal, natural gas, coal bed methane, crude oil, and trona.

Agriculture has traditionally been an important component of Wyoming’s economy. Though waning in recent years, it is still an essential part of the state’s culture and lifestyle.

Wyoming is the center of the continent's pronghorn antelope herd, boasts the largest antelope population of any state, and is home of the world's largest single elk herd. Mule deer are found in every county and white-tailed deer inhabit the Black Hills area. Moose are found in the northwestern part of the Wyoming, and there is also a small population of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep in the northern portions of the state. Cottontails and jackrabbits abound in Wyoming's open spaces, along with coyotes, bobcats, and a variety of fur-bearing animals.

The sage grouse is Wyoming's most plentiful and widely-distributed native game bird. Pheasants, chukar, Hungarian partridge, and wild turkeys abound. Many species of waterfowl, including ducks, geese, and the rare trumpeter and whistler swans are also found in Wyoming.

Wyoming has twenty-two species of game fish, including six kinds of trout that find the clear and cold streams and lakes to their liking. The world record California Golden Trout was caught in Wyoming's Cook Lake in 1948. Bass, walleye, crappie, perch, sauger, ling, channel catfish, and bluegill are found in the warm water lakes.

Wyoming Climate

Wyoming Real Estate

Wyoming has the second highest mean elevation in the United States at 6,700 feet above sea level. The climate is semiarid, but because of its topographical diversity, it is also varied. Annual precipitation varies from as little as five inches to as much as 45 inches a year, some in the form of rain and some in snow.

Because of its elevation, Wyoming has a relatively cool climate. Above the 6,000 foot level the temperature rarely exceeds 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer nights are generally cool, though daytime readings may be quite high. Away from the mountains, low July temperatures range from 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
