I actually live in Utah now but parents live in Wyoming and I go there often. Joining the Navy at 18 sure was a culture shock, living in Florida and Virginia was like living on another planet. Wyoming is a great place but not for everybody, hard winters for sure.
I love the cold. Love getting bundled up in 10 layers. I take my 40 yr old paks (felt insert boots) wherever I go. I get to use them maybe twice if I’m lucky down here NC. I could never go to FL although I did notice this summer that when it was 95 and felt like 105 with the humidity it wasn’t all that bad. Utah has its own kind of beauty. I am into photography and love the color.
