Lost Springs, Wyoming: Population 1

Lost Springs, WY Population 1[/caption] In September 2007 Solomon and I made our way to Lost Springs, Wyoming. We made our way south on I-25 until we got to Exit 126, where we would then head east on US 18/20.  Along the way we came to the sprawling metropolis of Lost Springs, WY.  According to a Wikipedia article, Lost Springs is one of only five towns in the United States that are officially registered in the census to have only one (1) person. The others are Hibbert’s Gore, ME, Erving’s Location, NH, New Amsterdam, IN and Monowi, NE.  Apparently, in 2009 the population had increased to 4.
