Vedauwoo is located in the Medicine Bow National Forest about a 20 minute drive east of Laramie.
The trail starts off in the aspen, winds its way up into forest and finishes with spectacular views of the surrounding forest and rock formations. Total mileage is about 1.5miles round trip, can be really windy and has uneven terrain that can be hard to navigate in dress shoes.
Head Quarters National Scenic Trail
and Pole Mountain
Near the summit rest area, this trail is easy to get to and offers a wide variety of scenery. The trail starts in a field of sage, moves to an aspen grove, then pines and also has a great overlook of Medicine Bow National Forest
The Snowy Range
High Elevation Trails
The Snowy Range provides an amazing background for photos. Depending on the time of year you can have wildflowers galore or 10 feet of snow.
This location is however, restricted to seasonal road openings so check with me if you are interested in this location.
State land in town
Might sound silly but right behind the Dollar Tree there is some state land that is sooo pretty! This is the perfect location if you don't want to (or weather wont allow) travel outside of town. The sunsets here light up all the grass and make it glow a beautiful golden color.
Lower Elevation Trails
Open all year round with lots of trees, streams, and possibly snow, the lower elevation trails of the snowy range are a lot of fun!
Curt Gowdy State Park
Great places are endless around Happy Jack Rd and Curt Gowdy State Park. They are easy to get to and have a ton of variety. This area is perfect if you are looking for changing leaves or nice evergreens. The wild flowers here are also amazing in the spring and early summer.
With the mountains of Colorado to the South and the snowy range to the West, the overlooks on Jelm mountain cant be beat.
In Your Home!
When the weather gets bad think about cuddling up in the place that represents you best! Don't be intimated by thinking you must have a clutter free home for a session...I usually just suggest tidying up one or two rooms in your house for pictures.
