In Laramie, WY, there is a gear shop, Big Hoss Mountain Sports (

We happened upon it on our first day in WY and spoke with Leo who was really helpful in terms of knowing a lot about the area–recommending camping sites, routes to climb, places to rest and a lot more.

Camping is free in most of the park and Laramie is a nice college town.

Note: WY is windy. Be warned.
