Wyoming is called the Cowboy State for a reason. Be sure to catch a rowdy rodeo while you're here.

Welcome to Shoshoni, a small town in Wyoming. Shoshoni is known as the gateway to Wind River Canyon, a scenic byway filled with tunnels and breathtaking views. Just outside of Shoshoni find Boysen Reservoir, where you can hook a fish or play on the water. 

During its early days, Shoshoni was the home of 23 saloons, two banks, two large mercantiles, livery and feed stables, a lumber yard, drug store, two physicians, lots of lawyers and a newspaper. It also had more lodging and restaurants than any other town of the same size in the state of Wyoming. Back in the day, copper was the most abundant element in the area, but gold and silver were also found here. When it was booming in the early 1900s, there were over 2,000 residents. Today, about 500 people call it home.
