Casper and the North Platte River are the heart of Central Wyoming. The surrounding landscape goes from sage-covered plains to tree-covered mountains, and back – some of the most iconically Western landscape. This is the corridor that many of America’s pioneers followed in their treks across the country, looking for a way through the Rockies to the south and west. Following along the North Platte River, towns including Chugwater, Wheatland, Glendo, Douglas and Glenrock live in the legacy of those early pioneers. Off the main highways, smaller towns and sweeping vistas draw visitors lucky enough to find them into a truly stunning land.
