Wyoming

 
Titcomb Basin

The state of Wyoming is a vast and beautiful place that includes a wide variety of scenery and landscapes. While large areas of the state are simply prairies covered with sage brush, the mountain ranges scattered throughout it include some of the most remote and wild wilderness areas found anywhere in the United States. While the number of high and prominent peaks here is lower than the surrounding states, Wyoming is home to the Grand Teton, one of the most famous peaks in the world, and the Wind River and Absaroka Ranges, both of which present the hikers, mountaineers, and outdoor enthusiasts who visit them with varying sets of challenges and ample aesthetic rewards.

The mean elevation of the state of Wyoming is 6,700 feet above sea level, making Wyoming the second highest state just after Colorado. With the Continental Divide wandering diagonally across the state's mountains from the northwest corner to the south central part of the state, Wyoming is the home of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and Devils Tower National Monument. The highest point in Wyoming is Gannett Peak, in the Wind River Range, at 13,804 feet above sea level. The lowest point in Wyoming is the Belle Fourche River at 3,099 feet above sea level.

This page is intended as a master list of areas and ranges and other list pages on SummitPost for the state of Wyoming. Many of the ranges listed below are part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem; check out Bob Sihler's excellent page for an in-depth look at this unique and wonderful place.

You might add the Snake River Range and perhaps separately mention the Snowy Range even though it is part of the Medicine Bows. Both have SP pages.



Also, although they also spill into Montana, the Gallatins and the Beartooths reach into Wyoming, and the SP pages include some Wyoming peaks for those ranges.



Good luck with the page. I look forward to seeing the finished product!

Thanks, I appreciate the input, (especially from a SP stud like yourself, I dig your work) I plan on really doing some work in the coming weeks. I’m really just trying to figure out the format of making a page… if all goes well I hope to make some mountain pages, I got a list! Thanks again, any input is very welcome.

When you get to work on the mountain pages, please feel free to ask for any help you might need about information or layout. I'll look forward to those pages helping me vicariously experience Wyoming while I'm here at home!

John,

I've updated the things that you pointed out and reworked the 13ers list - I've added a citation and am working on reordering the prominence list to match the list on your site. Please let me know if you see anything else!
