The Park again warns visitors about wildlife hazards:

  • Stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves, and 25 yards from all other wildlife.
  • Do not crowd or push wildlife.
  • Due to a severe winter of above-average snowpack, wildlife such as bison, elk and moose are stressed and weak.
  • Be mindful as they endure this hardest part of the year.
  • Bison and elk often use roads as travel corridors when the snow is deep, and higher than usual snowbanks this year prevent them from easily moving off the road.

And don't pet the fluffy cows.

Wyoming Mountaineers of Casper College Archival Collection

This collection was found unprocessed but was pieced together in stages over the course of a year, starting with the scrapbook and photo albums created by the WMCC. These items were found first and so were arranged and described at the collection level, and then as processing continued, the climbing vest and pitons were found, followed by various documents and articles written and published on the Mountaineers, all of which brought the collection together.

Highlights of the collection are the artifacts and documentation of the First Graduation Climb on Devils Tower in 1955, the 1956 Rappel off the side of the Casper Gladstone Hotel, and the climbs during the 50th Anniversary of Devils Tower. Documentation on the latter includes a feature in LIFE Magazine.
