Southeast Wyoming's golden plains of wheat fields cover the land, stopping only for the Laramie Mountains and the Medicine Bow Range, the Shirley Mountains, the Seminoe Mountains, and the Sierra Madre. There is frontier feel in Southeast Wyoming, and it's only appropriate that the annual Frontier Days rodeo is held in the state capital, Cheyenne. On any given day, you can also visit the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum to brush up on your western history.
The Northe Platte River flows through Southeast Wyoming and has greatly influenced Wyoming's history and development. Following the river were the Oregon, California, and Mormon Pioneer trails, as well as the first Overland Stage route, the Pony Express, and the first transcontinental telegraph line. Now you can float down the river with the help of a river guide, looking for the perfect place to reel in some Trout.
In Bridger National Forest, there is an intermittent spring that brings forth a large volume of water from an orifice of perpendicular rock for about 18 minutes, and then doesn't flow at all for 18 minutes. It cycles through like a geyser and the water runs over beautiful moss-covered rocks and into Swift Creek.
