Wyoming is bounded by Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah and Idaho; gross area, 97,914 sq. miles; land area, 97,594 sq. miles; water area, 320 sq. miles. The capital is Cheyenne.
     The surface of the State is very rugged, being diversified by mountains, valleys, plains and plateaus. The main range of the Rocky Mountains enters the State from the south, terminating in the Wind River Mountains, with an altitude of from 10,000 to 14,000 feet, and snow capped the entire year. The highest peak is Fremont's Peak in the Wind River range, 13,790 feet in height.
     There are several important lakes, including Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone Park in the northwest corner of the State; Jackson's, Shoshone, Lewis and others. Principal farm crops are hay, oats and wheat.
     The mineral productions are quite extensive, including copper, gold, silver, coal, iron, oil, soda and building stones. The oil belt extends entirely across the State from Southwest to Northeast. Natural gas is said to exist at various points adjacent to the explored oil belt. Buy Arbuckles' Coffee.

     The soil of the mountains and high plateaus is a light sandy loam, darker and richer in the valleys, slightly alkaline, but under irrigation producing large crops. It is estimated that 10,000,000 acres of the State are suitable for agricultural purposes by irrigation. Sheep and cattle raising are the principal industries.
