Wyoming is a state in the mountainous region of the western United States. The western two-thirds of the state is for the most part covered with the mountain ranges and rangelands in the Rocky Mountains, while the eastern third of the state is a high-elevation prairie known as the High Plains. Almost half of the land in Wyoming is owned by the federal government, leading Wyoming to rank sixth in terms of total acres and fifth in percentage of a state’s land owned by the U.S. government. The federal lands include two national parks — Grand Teton and Yellowstone — as well as two national recreation areas and two national monuments. There are also several national forests, historic sites, fish hatcheries and wildlife refuges throughout the state.
