Physical map of Wyoming
Information about the geography of WyomingWyoming is a one of the fifty states, its borders are lines of longitudes and latitudes, so it has no natural landmarks as its border. It is also the least populous state in the country.
The terrain is mostly characterized by the ranges of the eastern Rocky Mountain Ranges, the Big Horn Mountains, the Absaroka Range, the Wind River Range, the Wyoming Range, the Laramie Mountains, the Medicine Bow Mountains. Rivers from these ranges, the most important of which are the Belle Fourche, Cheyenne, North Platte rivers, run down towards the east to reach the Great plains that occupy the eastern third of the state. There are also basins, like the Great Divide Basin, and some river valleys, like the Bighorn river valley, Green River Valley, or the Snake River Valley, that intersect the mountains. Highest peak is Gannett peak, at 4210 meters. The famous Yellowstone National Park is found in the northwestern corner of the states near the similarly named Yellowstone Lake.
