If you happen to be in Casper during the summer, plan to visit this mountain park and folksy museum. For more than 90 years, locals and visitors have gathered on Casper Mountain during the summer solstice to celebrate the Midsummer Festival. This historic spot on Casper Mountain draws hundreds of people to hear mythical stories created by one of the mountain’s first residents, Neal Forsling. Her stories about friendly elves, witches and forest spirits that called Casper Mountain home live on during the festival each year, rain or shine. The museum is open on weekends from June through September.
