A Vedauwoo Venture

Earlier this month, a camping trip happened in southern Wyoming at Vedauwood campground (part of Medicine Bow National Forest).

I would never have expected to run into a number of hummingbirds here.

Talk about a goldmine of a view.

Even two herons showed up (what’s next? Flamingos?).

The campsite itself was something to behold set up on the top of this rocky hilltop in total privacy at sunset.

Large, flat boulders made for a comfortable spot to stretch out and watch the sun go down.

The sunrise though. Wow.

I truthfully don’t know if I’ll ever see a glorious morning that stunning ever again in my lifetime. It took my breath away. That kind of natural beauty will make you stand quietly and thank all that is precious you were given the opportunity to witness it.

As I sat on a boulder near the edge of our site, I took notice of the many flowers that grew out of the slightest of crevices. Purples, yellows, whites and pinks abounded.

 

And little chipmunks were everywhere! They eagerly announced their energy and excitement to the world by flitting about and chirping loudly with their tails twitching this way and that.

I sincerely hope to come back to this exact spot again soon to experience this special place over and over.
