Wyoming

Wyoming is a highland state in the western United States, part of the Western Region of the United States and a group of so-called Mountain States. The population is 493.8 thousand people (50th, that is, the last place among the US states; data from 2000). The state with the lowest population density in the country (1.8 people per km²).

The capital and largest city is Cheyenne.

State nicknames:

Cowboy State

Equality State

Geography and climate

According to itypetravel, Wyoming covers an area of ​​253.3 thousand km² (10th among the states). It is limited (like its neighbors Utah and Colorado) only by lines of latitude and longitude, and, like Colorado, forms a regular “rectangle” in the projection. Wyoming borders Montana to the north, South Dakota and Nebraska to the east, Colorado and Utah to the south, and Idaho to the west.

The western part of Wyoming is occupied by the Rocky Mountains; the highest point is Gannet Peak (4207 m). Average height above sea level (2042 m). The eastern part of the state is part of the Great Plains, intersected by the Black Hills; in the southwest are the plains of the Wyoming Plateau. The main rivers are Yellowstone, Green and Snake.

About 16% of the state is covered by forests; among valuable tree species there are twisted broad-leaved pine, Douglas, aspen-shaped poplar.

The climate is sharply continental, cool and dry.

History

Traditionally, the Crow, Blackfoot, Ute, Salish, Shoshone, Cheyenne, Arapaho, and Sioux Indian tribes lived in the state. Archaeologists have discovered traces of human habitation in the state dating back to the 7th millennium BC. e.

In 1803, the territory of Wyoming was ceded to the United States under the terms of the Louisiana Purchase. In 1807, the western regions of Wyoming were first explored by John Colter, although it is possible that even earlier, in the 1790s, French hunters were here.

In 1827, Jim Bridger opened the so-called South Passage, or South Pass through the Rocky Mountains. In 1842, John Fremont’s expedition passed through the South Pass, after which one of the most important routes from the east to the Pacific coast was laid through Wyoming.

In 1869, the authorities of Wyoming (then a territory) granted women the right to vote for the first time in the United States, for which Wyoming was nicknamed the State of Equality. An important role in the development and urbanization of Wyoming was played by the construction of the Union Pacific railroad.

July 10, 1890 Wyoming became the 44th state of the country. At the same time, the state constitution was adopted. Now only Shoshone and Arapaho remain among the Indians in the Wind River Reservation.

Economy

Wyoming is rich in minerals (oil, natural gas, coal, uranium, the world’s largest reservoir deposits of natural soda), and the mining industry has traditionally dominated the state’s economy. Oil extraction began in the 1880s; uranium deposits discovered in 1918 have been actively exploited since the 1950s. Tourism is one of the state’s main sources of income. Major local attractions are Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.

Due to the significant barter of mined minerals for goods produced in other states, the Wyoming economy is often referred to as a “colonial type” economy. A prominent place in this barter trade is also occupied by agricultural products (cattle, wool, sugar).
