As the summer travel season saw its official end with the Labor Day holiday yesterday, the Wyoming Travel and Tourism Department is optimistic that the summer of 2013 will prove to have been a solid year for the industry.  Wyoming Office of Tourism Director Diane Shober says the preliminary numbers for the season have been very positive.  Shober says the inquiries coming in and response to the marketing campaign are up – in some cases double digit – and compared to where the state was a year ago, visitation at the welcome centers statewide is up on the average of 11%.  Shober, however points to the next couple months as being increasingly important to tourism with an influx of older travelers and empty-nesters visiting the state through the fall.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]
