Hiking Wyoming  by Bill Hunger
Wyoming, with its rugged mountains, high plains, desert prairies, and canyonlands, presents hikers with a spectacular array of backcountry opportunities. Many areas, from Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks to the Wind River Range, are well-known, but they represent only a fraction of the hiking possibilities in Wyoming. This guide covers the well-known areas but also introduces hikers to some of the state's best-kept backcountry secrets. Former Wyoming wilderness ranger Bill Hunger descries 75 hikes throughout the state suited to dayhikers and veteran backpackers alike.
