Welcome to Wyoming
One of the places we wanted to experience on our second cross-country road trip of 2019 was the state of Wyoming. It is the 10th largest in the U.S. by area, the least populous, and the second most sparsely populated state in the country.
Getting away from the noise, traffic and nonstop distractions of city-life isn’t hard in Wyoming. The state’s vast size and low population could allow each person living in Wyoming to have 111 acres all to themselves.
After driving across the rough roads of Iowa, I-80 in Wyoming was a welcome relief. I-80 across Wyoming is extremely well-maintained. Almost every pothole was either flagged or crews were there digging out entire sections of the interstate to make repairs. It's one state that obviously takes pride in their roads. If you're towing, a trip across Wyoming should be on your list of places to visit.
There aren’t many states that you get to cross the Continental Divide twice. Wyoming is an overachiever when it comes to the Continental Divide - Well done, Wyoming!
