Since long before the area known as Wyoming became a state in 1890, civilization has been using the Southern corridor of this state for transportation, creating a rich heritage to be shared with visitors. From dinosaur tracks to wagon tracks to railroad tracks to modern interstate highways, join us for a tour of the area that may take you back millions of years and you will become a part of the "Tracks Across Wyoming." Traveling "Tracks Across Wyoming" takes you on a journey through time as well as space. Discover how the stories of westward migration and the nation's first transcontinental railroad and coast-to-coast automobile route are woven throughout southern Wyoming. LEARN MORE

The Tracks Across Wyoming corridor covers a lot of "ologies" – geology, archaeology, paleontology. You can see archaeologists at work in Pine Bluffs and Evanston, find fossils in Kemmerer, and learn about the geology that formed the corridor in Rock Springs.

Each of the communities along the Tracks Across Wyoming corridor has its own personality. You'll visit cattle towns, mining towns, and railroad towns. You'll find very small communities and pretty large cities (well, large by Wyoming standards!). Andeach has its own unique stories to tell. LEARN MORE

In Memoriam

The Wyoming preservation community is mourning the death of Laramie's Larry Ostresh on August 7th, 2013, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. Passionate about railroads and preservation, Larry, a retired University of Wyoming professor of Geography, was a long time board member of both the Historic Laramie Depot and Tracks Across Wyoming. He was instrumental in the creation of the Snow Train, the only one of its kind in the nation, working with the Laramie City Council and others to collect railroad cars from across Laramie to create the train located just south of the Laramie Depot, recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  He created the complex map of Tracks member sites, and had been working diligently to gain further recognition for Ames Monument. He also worked with the Albany County Tourism Board to create updated brochures highlighting attractions across the county. Volunteer, colleague, and friend - Larry will be missed. Donations in his memory may be sent to the Historic Laramie Depot.
