WYOMING – Wyoming viewers will get to see more of their beautiful state when “Travels with Darley” debuts its third season on Wyoming PBS with a special “Wyoming National Forests” episode broadcast on Monday, April 17, at 10 p.m. on Wyoming PBS.

Emmy-nominated TV host Darley Newman of “Equitrekking” fame, takes viewers mountain biking in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Jackson Hole, hiking in Vedauwoo in the Medicine Bow National Forest outside of Laramie, to historic Pinedale for craft beer and beyond during this half hour episode.

“Travels with Darley,” which takes viewers around the world with locals to experience great food, culture and adventure activities, debuts weekly on Wyoming PBS on Mondays at 10 p.m. starting April 3. The series, which launched on AOL as digital shorts in 2014 and PBS in January 2016, recently completed its 18th half-hour with this diverse third season, which finds Newman uncovering hidden gems in Wyoming, Martinique in the French Caribbean, along Route 66 and Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie outside of Chicago, Ill., and in urban Hong Kong.

“Wyoming is such a pretty state and seeing it with locals who love its nature and history so much, really makes the episode special,” said Newman. “I was surprised to find surfers in Wyoming, but not surprised at the wonderful riding, hiking, scenery and volunteer activities. All of the adventures we showcase in Wyoming are accessible to viewers, so they can recreate the experiences on their public lands and in the surrounding communities.”

“We’re thrilled to have been able to partner with ‘Travels with Darley,’” said Tia Troy, media and public relations manager for Wyoming Office of Tourism. “This episode will give viewers the opportunity to see and explore Wyoming’s diverse offerings and experiences through Darley’s eyes.” 

In Pinedale, viewers learn about the history of this outdoor lover’s town, where Newman enjoys a pint at the Wind River Brewing Company and goes fishing on the second-largest natural lake in Wyoming, Fremont Lake, with Bryan Lane of Two Rivers Emporium.

This was Newman’s and the production team’s second visit to Wyoming, having filmed previously for “Equitrekking.”
