As travelers picked up their lives and headed out West— whether it was on the Oregon Trail or the transcontinental railroad—passing through Wyoming’s southern corridor was a fundamental part of the journey. But for some, this piece of Wyoming became more than a gateway to a target destination. It became a destination unto itself, as those who came to work on the railroad were drawn to the tranquility and untamed beauty of the region and decided to claim it as home. The communities they founded and the trails and landscape that left such a remarkable impression on them can be seen by visitors who explore the Tracks Across Wyoming heritage area today.
