Wyoming Parks In NPS Top 10

NPSLogo

The National Park Service has released the ranking of which park units saw the most visitations last year.  Not surprisingly, the units on the eastern side of the country were numbered among the most visited.  However, when considering only national parks, Wyoming’s two parks were among the top ten.  Yellowstone was ranked fourth for visitation and Grand Teton was eighth.  Again, the closer the park is to a populated area, the more likely it was to be visited.  Consequently, Great Smoky Mountains National Park near the East Coast was number one followed by Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Parks which are easily accessed by those living on the West Coast.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
