Explore The Backyard. Backpack into uncharted territory in the Bighorn Mountains, step into history and experience Ernest Hemingway’s Wyoming, and delve into centuries of Indian storytelling. Dive headlong into craft culture, and touch the heart of Sheridan’s creative community with us.
The latest project from the team at Sheridan County Travel & Tourism, debuting this summer as a YouTube exclusive streaming series, is simply titled The Backyard. Join us as we backpack into uncharted territory in the Bighorn Mountains, step back through time and into history as we experience Ernest Hemingway’s Wyoming, and delve into centuries of Indian storytelling. Along the way we will dive headlong into craft culture and touch the heart of Sheridan’s creative community.
We intend to show everyone in our community, and beyond the borders of Wyoming, what makes the great outdoors special, and why the Bighorns are the ultimate playground for those who choose to go outside and play. In this wild time of social distancing, distrust, and disbelief, we believe that the mountains can bring us closer together. And we hope to encourage people from across Wyoming and across the nation to set out for the greatest road trip destination in America.
Experience some of our backyard’s most epic hikes, legendary attractions, national historic landmarks, and much more. Along the way, we will kayak pristine rivers, paraglide from perilous peaks, suss out outlaw history, and stargaze at the brightest night skies in America. Yeah, there is a metaphor tucked in there somewhere. We know that the clouds are going to break on 2020.

Just remember: Leave natural spaces cleaner than you found them, keep a safe distance from wildlife and respect the health and safety of everyone you encounter by social distancing and wearing a mask.
