At the end of August we hiked and camped (and the little ones rode their bikes) at beautiful Vedauwoo, Wyoming.
On the Turtle Rock trail, the kids enjoyed climbing and sliding on some large rocks, and we saw aspens, a beaver pond, and of course awesome rock formations. Vedauwoo is a very popular rock climbing spot, and though no one in our group was prepared for it, we enjoyed watching other folks climbing up the huge rocks.
Our campsite was huge, and it was nice to spend the night there and see the rocks change color as the sun went down. Those who were awake after dark (not me!) said the view of the stars was amazing. The next morning, we hiked the Box Canyon trail, which had some huge rocks that the kids enjoyed exploring.
It was a great little camping trip, and such an easy drive from Fort Collins. I’m sure we’ll return for hiking and camping in the future.
