Vedauwoo, WY

Post by dbhguru » Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:30 am


Yesterday, Monica and I said goodbye to the spacious Rocky Mountain West with a brief stop at Vedauwoo in the Laramie Range, 30 some miles west of Cheyenne, WY. The area excels in fantastic rock formations of pegmatite granite. Here re 5 images. Elevations are between 8,400 and 9,000 feet. I used the area a lot when I was stationed at F.E. Warren AFB in Cheyenne. It is a magical area. No big trees, but plenty of old ones. I doubt that the interpreters really appreciate how many old trees there are in Vedauwoo. It was a sacred site to the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians.
