“This town in the shadow of the Wind River Range is a melting pot of cowboys, Northern Arapahoe and Eastern Shoshone tribes, artists, and outdoor enthusiasts …” Sunset Magazine
got it right by naming Lander one
of its best hometowns in 2016. Specifically, Lander is runner up on its
list of best small towns. The February, 2016 issue of the magazine lists
the many peaks, including Wyoming’s tallest, Gannett Peak, the influence of
the National Outdoor Leadership School, and a “lively downtown” as
highlights of this hometown.
