Vedauwoo

Vedauwoo. (Wikipedia/Jharp)

This is one of the most interesting “rock collections” in the world, and certainly one of the oldest piles of granite boulders anywhere. The ancient rock at Vedauwoo dates back a million years, formed by the eons of water and constant weather. And it’s here, at the northern finger of the Rocky Mountains, in Albany County, Wyoming, where the rocks form the majestic mountaintop scene that is Vedauwoo.

Vedauwoo is Arapaho for “earthborn spirits”, and pronounced “vee-da-voo”. And, it’s true to it’s name, a spirtual setting where the rocks rise out of the forest, and the earth takes center stage. Vedauwoo is in perfect view, just to the north of Interstate 80, southeast of Laramie.

There’s a wonderful picnic area at Vedauwoo that has become a popular spot, with a perfect view of the rocks, and the climbers that scale the face here. The area provides hikers and mountain bikers the perfect playground during the summer and fall.

The land at Vedauwoo was owned by Wyoming Governor B.B. Brooks in the 1890’s. Today, this ancient scene is a spectacular display of “earthborn spirtis”. Vedauwoo, Wyoming on the Rocks.
