Another concentration of interesting rock formations was found at Vedauwoo. It’s a part of the Medicine Bow National Forest-Pole Mountain Recreation Area, with miles of back roads for hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, picnicking and camping.
You probably know how much I like big rocks and boulders. I did some hiking in the rocks and shot some photos. Cliffs, boulders, balanced rocks, pines and wildflowers were the subjects.
Some climbers were scaling a tall rock formation. I suspect it’s an exhilarating experience; but, not something I would want to try. Besides, I enjoy more the views of the rocks from below as they tower upward.
There was a campground. But further on, were free campsites just off the roadway, with gravel pads and rock fire-rings. The gravel road more-or-less paralleled I-80 so there was a good internet signal. My spot had a nice view of the rocks, and at almost 8,300ft the temperature was pleasant.
