Let's Talk Wyoming - Wyoming's Weather, Basketball Hurdles, and the Iconic Yellowstone Journey

Let's Talk Wyoming

Feb 27 2024 • 21 mins

Wyoming's weather is as unpredictable as a plot twist in your favorite novel, and we're here to unravel the mystery behind our state's recent mild temperatures and how they're blessing our farmers with a hint of early spring. But don't put away those snow boots just yet! We also talk about the looming threat of late-season snowstorms that could spell trouble for the agricultural community. Then, we turn the spotlight to the hardwood, where the Wyoming Cowboys and Cowgirls basketball teams are navigating through turbulence, and we dissect the elements they need to regroup and bounce back. High school athletes are on the edge of their seats, too, as state wrestling and basketball tournaments are about to unfold, marking the crescendo of the winter sports season.

Step back in time with us to the days of the Hayden Geological Survey of 1871, where the unlikely duo of Thomas Moran and William Henry Jackson embarked on an expedition that would change the face of the American wilderness forever. Their groundbreaking collaboration birthed a treasure trove of art that persuaded Congress to designate Yellowstone as the world's first national park. We'll explore how their enduring works—Moran's majestic paintings and Jackson's stirring photographs—continue to inspire conservation and art lovers alike, reminding us of the indelible mark they've left on both Wyoming and the global stage. Join us as we celebrate these trailblazers and the powerful legacy of their partnership in art and environmental protection.  If you have any comments, please contact us at mark.hamilton@letstalkwyoming.com.
