Every Thursday, I will be posting a photo from my travels and a spotlight on the location. Today’s Photo Thursday is from Vedauwoo section of Medicine Bow – Routt National Forest in Wyoming. This photo is from my second trip to Vedauwoo. Originally, I had planned to climb Pike’s Peak this weekend, but due to the smoke from the 2010 Waldo Canyon Fire, it wasn’t possible. I made the four-hour drive from Colorado Springs, Colorado to Vedauwoo, Wyoming. I camped in the Vedauwoo campground. I had the option of dispersal camping for free, but I liked having a bathroom nearby. I spent the weekend hiking and bouldering among the hoodoos and outcroppings.
Happy Earth Day! Earth day was founded 45 years ago to celebrate the Earth. The giant blue sphere that is our home. In the excitement of celebrating, don’t forget to drink a toast John Muir. Yesterday, John Muir celebrated his 177th birthday. Happy Birthday, John! I know I am a day late, but its the though that counts.
