With 580,000 inhabitants, Wyoming is the least populous state in the USA, although it has almost the size of the Federal Republic of Germany before the German reunification. Although about 100,000 people are living in the greater Cheyenne area, you hardly notice this fact. The capital of the state seems cosy, colorful and completely dominated by the life of the cowboys. 25 oversized cowboy boots – colorfully painted by local artists – characterize the town. Depot Plaza with the old station building, the Wyoming state capitol and the world’s largest steam locomotive – Big Boy 4004 – complete the pretty picture of the city.
