When most people think of Wyoming – unless you’re a George Strait fan (I Can Still Make Cheyenne; Song Reference) – you probably don’t think of anything. Well, Leave it to us at Agape Voyage, to show you all the reasons why Wyoming is a natural beauty that you’ll want to explore!
1. Take A Dip In The Granite Hot Springs
There is gorgeous hiking here in the spring, summer and fall. The hot springs are natural, so don’t be surprised by the smell of sulphur ;). Camping and mountain biking are some extras fun things to do in this beautiful part of town!
2. Tour Grand Teton National Park
This park is mountainous and alpine beauty! Enjoy great hikes, adventurous vehicle trails and lots of wildlife sightings. Around each turn, the three Tetons are visible and the Snake River footnotes the valley. Starting in Jackson, through the Elk Refuge, and up in to Yellowstone, the park offers everything!! Including boating, wildlife viewing, ranger talks and astronomy lesson!
3. Kayak Jenny Lake
A definite must see while in Jackson. Take the boat shuttle over to the other side of the lake to check out the waterfalls. Fantastic views!
4. Visit The Grand Prismatic Spring
The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park contains different types of Archaea. Each color represents a different type of Archaea and it’s absolutely gorgeous to catch a glimpse of this natural beauty. Enter The Grand Geyser Basin boardwalk in Yellowstone National Park and suddenly be overcome by nature’s ability to amaze you with the array of colors and geographic texture of the terrain. It’s hard not to Imagine yourself on the surface of some extretrestial landscape, because what you experience here is unlike anyplace you’ve encountered on Earth.
