Wyoming was the first state to grant women the right to vote in 1869. This action lead to the nickname “The Suffrage State” and later to “The Equality State.” “Equality” is also the state motto. Several events will be occurring across the state this year in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage. Defined by vast plains and the Rocky Mountains, its famed Yellowstone National Park is a nearly 3,500-sq.-mile wilderness recreation area and home to hundreds of animal species, dramatic canyons and alpine rivers. The park’s gushing geysers include the iconic Old Faithful. To the south is Grand Teton National Park, known for backcountry skiing areas, forested trails and Snake River.
