Wyoming is a landlocked state in the western USA. It is bordered by Montana in the north; Montana, Idaho, and Utah in the west; Utah and Colorado in the south; and Nebraska and South Dakota in the east. It is also the least populous and least densely populated state with 578,759 inhabitants in 2019. Its capital and largest city is Cheyenne. Its governor is Mark Gordon.
Wyoming's climate is generally semi-arid and continental. The state includes areas of arid desert, semiarid steppe (short-grass prairie), and alpine climates. The arid desert regions are all found in the western half of the state. Wyoming supports abundant animal life and it’s home to pronghorns and to the world’s largest single herd of wapiti (American elk).
Native American tribes including the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Crow, Shoshone, and Ute used to live on the land. The first European to arrive was explorer François Louis Verendrye in 1742. The early explorers were followed by small numbers of fur traders, although there were likely never more than 500 traders in Wyoming.
In November 1867, the first train of the Union Pacific Railroad reached Cheyenne and made the state accessible to settlers and visitors. The state’s constitution was approved by a vote of the territorial population on Nov 5, 1889, although Wyoming was not admitted to the Union until 1890. Wyoming’s constitution was the first in the world to grant full voting rights to women, as well as to allow them to hold public office. Wyoming also became the first state to elect a woman governor when Nellie Tayloe Ross won the position in 1924.
Wyoming’s economy is heavily tied to mining and agriculture (primarily the marketing of beef cattle and sheep). The state also has an important and growing tourist industry.
