One of the best parts of living in Wyoming, is the amount of options you have for adventures, activities and outdoor entertainment. Some of those options, after you have all the equipment and supplies, won't cost your family anything.

There are lots of areas where you can disperse camp, hike, mountain bike, or off road riding.

Another big FREE option, is hitting one of the rivers for a float trip.

Depending on what part of the state you're going to visit, you're going to find some of the best floating options in the country, here in Wyoming.

Are all great options for your family and friends to spend some time on the water.

If a float trip is something you've been looking in to for this summer and you've never done one before, it's really important to know what you're getting into.
