Wyoming USA is a Western state covering 253 597 km2 (97 914 sq miles). It is the ninth largest state in area but is the second smallest only to Alaska in population numbers and density.

The Rocky Mountains in the west and south rise to 4208 m (13 804 ft) at Gannett Peak, and plains more than 1000 m (3300 ft) above sea level stretch northeastwards to the Black Hills on the South Dakota border. Irrigation is necessary for some crops because of the semiarid climate, and cattle, wheat and sugar beet are the main farm products.

Wyoming has extensive deposits of coal, oil and natural gas, and its fine scenery - including that of YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK increasingly attracts tourists. CHEYENNE is the capital.

Cheyenne USA is the State capital of Wyoming, in the southeast of the state, 15 km (9 miles) from the Colorado border. It was founded in 1867 and, as a rail junction, played a key role in opening up the west. Its history is commemorated in an annual Frontier Days festival.
