CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead joined Wyoming Tourism Director Diane Shober for the grand opening of the Southeast Wyoming Welcome Center today. The facility, located on the east side of Interstate 25 at the new High Plains Road exit (Exit 4) near the Colorado/Wyoming border, will give visitors an impressive start to their travels in the state. The $13 million public investment will direct tourists to many interesting Wyoming locations they might otherwise miss and includes an exhibit showcasing the region’s early inhabitants in the form of a Columbian Mammoth cast.
