Grasshopper, there ARE no big cities in Wyoming!
I'm glad you had an awesome trip. Here's the scoop:
The largest cities are in the SE corner: Casper, Cheyenne, and Laramie. However, the SE corner is a great deal different (not just in appearance) than the NW corner you visited. Jackson Hole (as sort of
the hub of Yellowstone) is very ritzy, very touristy, and very atypical Wyo, in my opinion. I'm not saying that's bad; just if that's the extent of your experience, you need to do more research. Jackson is a VERY expensive place to live. How long were you there and where did you go? What did you do? What cities/towns did you visit?
As far as awesome places to live - the Wind Rivers are a beautiful range and awesome for outdoor enthusiasts, if that's what you're looking for. That said, be warned that the winter lasts for 9 months, and I am NOT exaggerating, and I was born in northern MN!
Wyoming, generally speaking, is very economically depressed. The pay is poor. Social problems abound - alcoholism, drug abuse, domestic violence, suicide, depression, isolation. It is really a tough place to live - it takes a certain kind of person to make it there. Educational opportunities are very limited.
All that said, I love Wyo. I lived in SW Wyoming for three years. (This was before I became a nurse.) Please don't flame me in defense of Wyoming! I am NOT knocking the state, I've just seen a lot of people visit and love it, transplant, and then "fail to thrive." I had some of the best experiences of my life when I lived there, and met some of the brightest, funniest, WARMEST people I have ever known. Wyoming has a very special place in my heart.
Grasshopper, where do you live now? What stage of your career are you in? Any kids? I'm not trying to discourage you, just give you a heads up! Hope this helps!
