Wyoming is the 10th largest state, with nearly half of that owned by the federal government. Another 5.6% is owned by the State of Wyoming. With National Public Lands Day this Saturday, Wyoming outdoor enthusiasts have a lot to celebrate. For Laramie residents, our cup truly runneth over with access to public lands starting at the edge of town.
Trails and campgrounds don’t just appear, though. They are built and, once in place, need to be maintained. The vast open spaces often need some TLC to remedy both man-made and nature-caused problems.
