A recent video posted to Instagram by 5150' Local highlights a few of the outdoors activities that make weathering the winter months and hurricane force winds worth sticking around for.

The video was captioned:

Why locals put up with harsh Casper, Wyoming winters in 30 seconds. Worth it! #5150local #casperwyoming #casper #caspermountain #summerinwyoming #thatswy #wyhoming

From enjoying events at David Street Station to kayaking at Alcova Lake to hiking through Casper Mountain, there's a little something for everyone, and all ages!

Having been born right here in Casper, I've been telling my friends and family how great it is for decades. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so a video must be worth a million, and this one is the perfect interpretation of the summer wonders that make Oil City awesome.
