With 580,000 inhabitants, Wyoming is the least populous state in the USA, although it is pretty much the size of Western Germany before the reunification. Around 100,000 people live in the greater Cheyenne area, the capital. But you hardly notice that – the city is cozy, colorful and completely dominated by the life of cowboys. 25 oversized cowboy boots – colorfully painted by local artists – characterize the town. Depot Plaza with the old train station building, the Wyoming State Capitol and the world’s largest steam locomotive – Big Boy 4004 – are further attractions.
