Rolling into week six of our Listen To America road trip, HuffPost took a breath of fresh air in Casper, Wyoming.
Many come to Casper to experience the great outdoors, which you can enjoy any number of ways. There are dozens of biking and hiking trails across Casper Mountain, or you can take a ride down the North Platte River. Casper appeals to all sorts of fishers, ski fans and adrenaline junkies.
The city’s trails aren’t just enjoyable and gorgeous ― they’re also historical! Casper was once the only point of convergence between the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony Express trails.
HuffPost hiked and ventured around Casper, stopping by David Street Station to talk to locals. We also held a panel at Frontier Brewing Company about what Wyoming schools can do for funds in a post-bust economy. You can take a look at our time in Casper below:
