“Jumping from boulder to boulder and never falling, with a heavy pack, is easier than it sounds; you just can’t fall when you get into the rhythm of the dance.”
While I am a true Coloradan, I have spent a lot of my childhood (and continue to do so) in Wyoming as part of my family lives there. I remember growing up driving the two hours to Laramie, Wyoming for every Christmas, some Thanksgivings and for the time I would spend there in the summer. I used to make fun of Laramie all the time saying “there is nobody here,” “the buffalo outnumber the people” and all those other snobby things that Coloradans say. However, I have become quite fond of this small town. For one, there is AMAZING nature and gorgeous hiking that few venture to. This summer after one of the most life changing months, I spent an extended week in Wyoming hanging out with my family and going on some pretty amazing hikes!
We hiked Turtle Rock which is an easy loop and a great place to rock climb. It is quiet, serene and has a great loop that really anyone can do. My favorite hike was going to Medicine Bow National Park and doing two different hikes that were very different and equally fun and challenging. The first hike was a long hike through the woods while the other one was a rocky descent in a deep valley with a gorgeous lake.
I love hiking.
(good story right?)
Headed to Wyoming!

Hiking in the woods!
Trying to feed Zena with string cheese…she is more interested in modeling.
Let me know if you have every hiked Medicine Bow National Park and your favorite hikes there!
