About Wyoming

Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. Wyoming is the 10th most extensive, but the least populous and the 2nd least densely populated of the 50 U.S. states. The western two thirds of the state is covered mostly with the mountain ranges and rangelands in the foothills of the Eastern Rocky Mountains, while the eastern third of the state is high elevation prairie known as the High Plains. Cheyenne is the capital and the most populous city of Wyoming with a population of nearly 60,000 people within its city proper. As specified in the designating legislation for the Territory of Wyoming, Wyoming's borders are lines of latitude, 41N and 45N, and longitude, 1043'W and 1113'W (27 W and 34 W of the Washington Meridian), making the shape of the state a latitude-longitude quadrangle.
