As the summer draws to a close, WyoFile staffers seek to ensure they don’t miss out on Wyoming’s best season, so they’re taking most of the next two weeks off to go fishing. Instead of the usual collection of original stories and columns, this week we’re offering a look at some previously published, but still relevant, work. We encourage readers to explore our archives and use our search tool to find Wyoming news they might have missed.

Eclipse one year out

We are one year away from the total eclipse, which will happen Aug. 21, 2017.

Work by a University of Wyoming researcher has uncovered more clues about an almost-forgotten people.
