Last Days at Vedauwoo
This is a hundred yards of so further down my front yard. Odd shapes on that right one.
Well, I haven’t seen hardly any of what I’ve planned to, so the struggle begins for whether to delay my departure awhile. Thing is, if I leave, I’ll have all the more reason to return to “the same old campground year after year” to try to grab another tiny fraction of all there is here. It ain’t just rocks. That’s just what I’m fascinated by on this trip. So, here are a few more snaps of nearby areas, just as I snuck up on them during walks. If you want better, you’ll have to get ’em yourself – something I most highly recommend! Like a few other areas I’ve been to, this place feels like “home”.
Hard to see, but there’s deer peering at me in the bushes at center.
Same deer, better shot. He was part of a small herd heading for and crossing the main road in.
I liked the coloration. Is there copper in these rocks, or what?
This is an impressive place, and there are “tons” of it.
That beetle infestation has taken its toll, I guess.
Fascinating, in some symbolically kinky way. I try not to judge, but isn’t this a family website?
This is right next to a trail branch, and I couldn’t help imagining parking a small rig on top for a few days just to enjoy its difference. It’s one huge span of granite.
Perhaps you might like to pitch a tent under that dark overhang, and pray for no earthquakes.
One rock balanced on top of another. Perhaps they began as one rock, and split.
Really, is there any scientific explanation for this that goes any deeper than “random chance”?
Just a pull-off beside the main road. I like the tilt.
The suspended cube! That was the first thing I saw every morning when I woke up! I was a bit farther away, but that cliff face was just outside the window I faced when I slept. I recognized a couple of the other rocks in your pics. It’s kind of like seeing old friends again. 🙂
Neat! I should have waved and said hi for you when I went past it the last time! 😉
Beautiful pictures! Looks like an amazing place to explore!
Thank you, Mel. It really is a magical place, in its own way.
It’s the same with me…do I stay or do I go? I do both.
I almost did that, JR! Almost delayed departure for a day. Then I saw a Ranger’s truck go by while I was starting to deal with the solar panels, and took it as a hint that maybe it was time.
I understand. I’ve stretched it out one day but the ranger told me not to be there another. He was very polite.
