“Up in the Sky”

Reviewed 22 September 2017 via mobile

It was very fun driving in the Bighorns. The roads are very steep and scenic. The Medicine Wheel is well worth a look for anyone. It is at 10000 feet in elevation which makes the air pretty thin. The actual wheel is great to look at. It is a very interesting sight. I am not an enthusiast for Native American lore, I was impressed with this site and would recommend it to anyone to look at. The drive and the scenery are also great.

If you are in the area, make sure you make this trip. Scenery is beautiful - worth the walk. Take your time, stop along the way.

This is a bucket list item for me as I am in to back yard astronomy and love sun wheels, archeoastronomy, stone circles and alignments. I really did enjoy visiting the Big horn Medicine wheel. It is unblemished and not vandalized like so many other such sites. Note: yes there is a 1 mile walk each way and uphill going in. Uphill at 10,000 feet isn't for every one.

Tell the ranger if you have a physical condition which prevents you from walking a distance uphill. 2 cars a time are allowed to drive in right to the wheel if you cant make the walk. It is a real plus and allowed me to go.

The scenery is spectacular (above the tree line) and the horizons are beautiful. It is just the place to build such an observatory. Beautiful, haunting, wonderful.

A beautiful location about 10000 feet up. The walk is about 1.5 mikes each way (uphill) from the parking area but there's lots to take in. We spotted a fossilized seashell in the stone along the road, very cool. The medicine wheel is a moving place.

Wonderful hike and a breath taking view. Both rangers were very informative about the Medicine Wheel. There was still snow in July.
