Fun tidbits about Wyoming:
- Wyoming boasts two national parks – Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.
- The world’s largest (and one of only 3) intermittent spring is located near Afton Wyoming. The Periodic Intermittent Spring runs for about 18 minutes, then stops for 15-20 minutes, then starts all over again. Thanks Travel Wyoming.
- Wyoming is the least populated state in the US, making it the ideal location for social distancing.

We can craft a road trip for any budget. Contact us to create a custom package complete with wildlife safaris, whitewater rafting, private park tours, and more amazing bespoke itineraries.
