Can you believe that it is already November? We can't seem to wrap our heads around it. It's almost as though we woke up with 3ft of snow in April, crash coursed through a lively summer, tipped our hats to the most beautiful fall season and finally opened our eyes to a winter full of opportunity in the 5150'.
Look we know we're jumping the gun a bit here... BUT with Thanksgiving right around the corner, we can't help but feel as though our cups are so full from this place and the spirited people who dwell here.
To manifest a month of good ol' fashioned Wyoming gratitude, we've collected 21 of our favorite Instagram moments (captured by you!) that are SURE to make you thankful for the 5150' (if you're not already!). Get lost and revel in them below:
No. 1. A shot of Downtown Casper when the first snow falls, tourists leave and locals fill the city streets.
No. 2. Lucia Vigneri for Art 321 painting the walls of Wyoming in living color.
No. 3. What happens when women take to the western waters.
No. 4. Chasing waterfalls never felt more close to home.
No. 5. Afternoon entertainment brought to you by Lunchables, drift boats and water fights.
No. 6. Powder days on Casper Mountain. This must be heaven.
No. 7. Gaper gear or bust.
