"Connecting generations to our natural and cultural heritage."
The Summit Visitor Center is prominently situated at the highest point of Interstate 80 near Laramie, Wyoming and is located within Pole Mountain in the Medicine Bow National Forest.
The Roybal Corporation worked with Wyoming Travel and Tourism to design and fabricate new interpretive exhibits encouraging visitors to explore the many opportunities in southern Wyoming as they travel along the I-80 corridor:
“Settlement of the West” tells of the habitat and first European inhabitants of the region, as well as the colorful outlaws of Wyoming territory including Butch Cassidy.
“Natural Treasures” of Wyoming includes the many species of wildlife, and guides visitors to the recreation opportunities in southern Wyoming's expansive open spaces.
“Tracks Across Wyoming” highlights the trails, roads, and rails that shaped the American West as explorers and emigrants crossed Wyoming, and features the historic Lincoln Highway of which I-80 replaced.
“Forever West” is centered by a nine-foot-high Wyoming map for visitors to plan their “Classic American Road Trip” with excursions including rodeos, fairs, and historic sites; scenic byways and backways; or the chance to get away from it all at one of the many national and state parks.
