As we race through our hectic lives with things to do, places to be, and people to see it’s easy to overlook the importance of taking a moment to slow down. Unfortunately, in our society speed is a reward because going going going means you’re getting more done, which is more rewarding,right? Well, in my opinion sometimes slowing down is the true reward. For this exact reason, southern Carbon County, Wyoming is the perfect spot. Let me tell you about this hidden gem between the trees that offers you history, views and the reward of slowing down.
As the 2018 tourist season begins, CCVC is excited to have two new Visitor Services partners to assist in distributing visitor information throughout Carbon County. CCVC has expanded their current Visitor Services partners of the Valley Artisans (Baggs, WY) and the Rawlins Chamber of Commerce to include the Saratoga Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Medicine Bow Museum.
Hunting season has begun and the Carbon County Visitors’ Council is excited to launch the Carbon County Recreation and Trail Maps. CCVC partnered with Great Outdoor Consultants to create recreation and trail maps that are inclusive of all Carbon County outdoor resources. CCVC has created two maps: one of Northern Carbon County and one of Southern Carbon County. “These maps encompass all of Carbon County’s outdoor assets and activities! There are three ways to see the map: on our website, through the Avenza map app for smart phones, or CCVC has a limited number of water resistant print maps available for purchase.” said Leslie Jefferson, Executive Director of CCVC. The printed maps detail the northern half of Carbon County on one side and the Southern half on the other. Similarly, the online and Avenza maps will detail our county in two maps.
Many of these 2018 events are not yet in our calendar as final decisions on event times & locations are still being decided even though dates have been set. If you are looking for complete event information on upcoming events, also make sure to check out our calendar of events. We encourage you to contact event organizers to confirm details as event dates and times may change.
Carbon County Visitors’ Council (CCVC) conducts two photo contests per year. The 2018 Spring Photo Contest was launched mid-January and all entries were due by May 31st. On July 18th, the CCVC Board of Directors judged a total of 29 photo entries.
