A Whole New World

A Whole New World






DctrSpott

Many of my friends and family ask me about the surroundings in my new home, Laramie, WY. A picture is worth a thousand words, then a minute long video must be worth sixty thousand words (a veritable years worth of blog posts.) Enjoy these videos, I suggest muting them due to high wind speed and my inane rambling. These videos were taken in Pole Mountain unit of the Medicine Bow National Forest. Check the video descriptions for more details.

This video was the first mountain I had climbed in the area. The geocache nearby was archived (it was crushed by a falling boulder), but it was still a nice view.

My second climb (in the same day!), gave me a surprise treat: not only did I nab the nearby Where the eagles soar (GC1YAW1), I stumbled upon two benchmark FTFs!
Finally, a video just taken today, I was lucky to nab Terrace View at 8300' (GC1M03J), a spectacular climb. Note my neat shoes.

Check in next week for more tales from the wild west!

My husband loves to watch the old tv show "The Virginian" which is set in Medicine Bow. I didn't realize until a few weeks ago that Medicine Bow was a real place. Thanks for posting the videos - its beautiful there. I'll have to put some of those caches on my "To do" list!
