Wyoming is a state with a lot of variety. I am covering just a part of it. There is the lovely and the not so lovely.

Let’s start with the maps.

Even further in the past, dinosaurs roamed around and called Wyoming their home.

The two most famous dinosaur skeletons were found in Niobrara County.

The next two pictures are of the Lance Formation where the bones of the Triceratops were found.

The next picture of the Triceratops skeleton is from the Illustrated London News.

The next picture is of Como Bluff, where they found Brontosaurus bones.
