Known to the Arapaho Indians as “Land of the Earthborn Spirit,” Vedauwoo’s (pronounced vee-duh-voo) protrusions of Sherman granite were shaped by millions of years of icy, windy and wet weather. At an altitude of 8,000 feet, Vedauwoo is a rather secluded rocky oasis in southeastern Wyoming, filled with dense pine forests and aspen groves. It is surrounded by a seemingly endless expanse of high plains and lies under a dome of intense cerulean blue sky. Whether you’re interested in scaling the ancient sculpture’s rounded rocks, investigating the surrounding aspen and pine forests or simply passing time deciphering animal shapes in the formations, Vedauwoo is the perfect place to stop.
