As residents of Wy[home]ing we may take for granted the treasured vistas and resources that our own state offers. Fortunately for us, in the time it takes to watch a few episodes of Longmire, we can reconnect with Wyoming by visiting one of her great small towns: Lander. Lander has long been a destination for travelers worldwide. Here's a brief list of 5 great things that make this small foothills town a preferred stop, as compiled by the team at the Lander Holiday Inn Express & Suites : *#5. Take a drive.* Regardless of the direction you journey to reach Lander, you're guaranteed to view landscapes that remind you why you love the Cowboy State.

Walk the rocks of the "Sinks" where the Popo Agie River mysteriously disappears into the ground and 1/4 mile down the road visit the Rise where the river reappears into a pool filled with some of the biggest Brown trout you're likely to see.
