Wyoming is full of ghost sightings and you have a good chance of encountering one if you visit these places:

Cedar Mountain is located on the west side of Cody and offers excellent views of the town and of the Buffalo Bill Reservoir. Many people believe that they have encountered spirits in the dark caves and tunnels that run alongside the outside of the mountain. Whether you are exploring Cedar Mountain in your vehicle, on horseback, or by foot, keep an eye out for signs of the dead as it is a common occurrence for outdoor enthusiasts.
2. The Irma Hotel
