ABCs Tour of Geologic Wonders in Wyoming


Wyoming is abundant with geologic wonders, ranging from gemstones to specific locations. To help spread the word about these interesting features found in every part of the state, the WSGS is "touring" Wyoming and sharing postcards with a few fun facts. Be aware, these weekly stops are only a glimpse of what Wyoming has to offer, as the Survey is on an ABCs tour that is limited to the number of letters in the alphabet. Below are the stops the WSGS has made so far. Interested in learning more about Wyoming's geology? Check out WSGS' new interactive "Story Map" for fun facts about geologic features throughout the state.
