From the Editor – Straycations 2015


editor Jenny Willden

I’ve been lucky to see much of Utah through my years editing Outdoor Sports Guide, but I’ve ventured less into our neighboring state, Wyoming. So for this year’s Straycation edition, I visited southwestern Wyoming’s Sweetwater County for a race- and history-centric trip with plenty of outdoor recreation mixed in. Venturing into ghost towns, exploring Flaming Gorge, and racing with horses made it a summer highlight, and I hope you’ll use this guide to travel somewhere new this season too!

Our third annual Straycation Issue covers locations in Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming along with stay-cool experiences for you and pup-friendly trails and trips. For even more travel stories, visit our website at and follow us on Instagram @sportsguidemag.

Happy adventuring!
