    It's an empty desert without the warm climate the Southwest is known for, outside of ranching there's little that can be done there.

    Places with big population centers often got that way because of some natural or strategic advantage for a city to be there for commerce. Wyoming doesn't have much of this and it's out in the middle of nowhere.

    It's an extremely rugged state. It's always extremely windy.

    Must be all the damned wind turbines they put up ruining the aesthetics of their beautifully open prairies... and all the dead eagles which go along with them.

    There is not much there. They don't even have good mountains like Colorado does.
