Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop...

WYOMING!!!! Welcome to Wyoming, Forever West!



First some fun facts about this fun state I call home:
  • No state touches more other states than Wyoming.
  • The JCPenney stores were started in Kemmerer.
  • Wyoming was the first state to give women the right to vote.
  • Smallest town in the world is located in Buford, WY- Population 2! (halfway between Cheyenne and Laramie on I-80)
  • The University of Wyoming is the "highest" and has the "coolest" summers than any other Division 1 school in the US. It makes it tough for visiting athletes to compete at 7220 feet! GO POKES!

Famous For: Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, Old Faithful Geyser, Jackson Hole, Flaming Gorge, Cheyenne Frontier Days Celebration
Famous Wyomingites: James Bridger (trapper, guide), Dick Cheney (Vice President), Buffalo Bill Cody (scout), Curt Gowdy (sportscaster), Washakie (Shoshone Chief), James G. Watt (secretary of the Interior), Nellie Tayloe Ross (first woman elected governor)

Now for something fun from Wyoming:
This is a card I made using the 50 States Cartridge! It's Wyoming's flag!
