Welcome to Tuesday Trivia Wyoming

I’m so excited to have my first Tuesday Trivia be about Wyoming.
I was born in Lander and have lived most of my life in Wyoming. I graduated and got married in Green River, I have lived in
Cheyenne, Casper, Wheatland and Big Piney/Marbleton. So Wyoming will always be home.
