Wyoming's Snowy Range Scenic Byway

Wallpaper Photographs



The Snowy Range is part of the Medicine Bow National Forest near Laramie, Wyoming. It is also one of the closest really beautiful spots to a place I once lived. This afforded me the opportunity to visit often. The following pictures were taken on August 28, 2002. A spring and summer of drought left the mountains nearly naked of their usual snow cover. During my visit, storm clouds moved in, and you can see the difference those clouds made between the first and latter pictures.

These were taken two days later on August 30, 2002. I had hoped for more sunshine, but had a repeat of the sunshine turning cloudy scenario. I had approached the same area from the opposite direction this time.

I had been impressed with the area that I had photographed in the previous two outings, and decided that I very much wanted to visit the same area again when there was still snow on the mountains. I attempted this on July 3, 2003. The only problem was that there was too much snow and the trails were still not passable. I did, however, find some amazing wildflowers that are found on my Mountain Wildflowers page. I also took found these amazing views.

These pictures were taken from the Medicine Bow Trail in October, 2003. I attempted to hike to the top of Medicine Bow Peak but was turned back by the bitter cold wind. You can see the patterns made by the October wind on the lake water in some of the later pictures.

These were taken on a second attempt at the Medicine Bow Peak Trail on July 28, 2004, this time with a youth group. Unfortunately, the kids that I was hiking with were not up to the task of hiking to the top. Maybe some day I'll make it. Still, we made it to the top of some of the smaller peaks and the view was amazing.
