    Black Eyed Peas for New Year's luck is primarily a southern tradition, but thanks to our friends at OnlyInYourState.com, there is a modified recipe just for Wyomingites. Add some Wyoming bison meat to the chili for extra luck!

    Hike/Bike The Lucky Charm Trail

    Near Jackson

    If you're looking for good luck, why not try to find some on the Lucky Charm Trail? If you don't find any luck there, you'll still find spectacular scenery. It's an easy 1.3 mile trail near Jackson.
