This Little Known Natural Oasis is Hiding in Wyoming… And You’re Going To Love It

An oasis is a fertile patch in a desert-like area that is able to support vegetation due to its supply of water. Vedauwoo (Vee-dah-voo), known by residents but not as well-known by visitors, is a little oasis located on Pole Mountain in southeastern Wyoming. Located in higher elevations, it rises above the desert-like plains of eastern Wyoming and is made up of interesting rock formations, scattered trees and sources of water. It offers a welcome respite from the surrounding hot plains. Vedauwoo was known to the Arapaho Indians as the “Land of the Earthborn Spirit.”
