2. The Cowboy State

With its vast plans, it's not hard to see why Wyoming is known as The Cowboy State. Wyoming has an average of around 6 people per square mile, which is in part due to the Rockies. The presence of the Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone National Park means that by nature's design and national protection, much of the state cannot be inhabited by people as it is either inhospitable, preserved by the state, or both.
