Wyoming: More than just a place to see a solar eclipse
Where you one of the thousands people that trekked up to Wyoming for the eclipse? Did you notice how beautiful Wyoming was? With Labor Day right around the corner and camping on your mind, it is time to think about going back to Wyoming and here is why.
Wyoming offers great fishing and camping at a very reasonable price. Wyoming has plenty of options for tent, car, and rv campers. You can even find free camping in multiple places. If you are traveling on a budget, check out this list of 95 free camping spots in Wyoming. This should help you start planning your trip on a budget! The fishing in Wyoming is phenomenal. You can catch walleye, trout, catfish. The fishing is great and you get to bask in the beauty of Wyoming at the same time. Make sure you get your fishing license here. That site is also a great resource when it comes to planning a fishing trip.
If you are not excited about fishing, there are plenty of good hiking trails. If you are feeling ambitious you could even do a backpacking trip or a llama trek. When hiking, be prepared to see a lot of wildlife, possibly even a bear. The best thing about Wyoming, is how remote you can feel. It only has a population of 585,000. That means you are sure to find some great trails where you can be alone.
Finally, Wyoming is close. With traffic, it takes over three hours to get up to the mountains for camping. Wyoming is about a two-hour drive with a lot less traffic! Less time in a car equals more time exploring the great outdoors.
If you are really looking for a fun adventure and do not mind driving, I suggest heading up to the Tetons or Yellowstone National Park. No matter what you decide to do this Labor Day weekend, I hope you have a great time and get to enjoy your day off outside.
