This year’s solar eclipse put Casper, Wyoming, in the national spotlight, as the city’s clear skies and elevation are great for galaxy-gazing. But this place has eclipsed other outdoor destinations for a long time: What began as a classic Western town with cowboys, gamblers, bootleggers and the like is now a go-to spot for travelers who love wild adventures in mountains, rivers and fields.
Of course, all this scenery provides some stunning photo opps. We took a virtual trek through Casper and the surrounding area on Instagram to find the spots most worthy of a ’gram.
