Medicine Wheel is America's Stonehenge; Long dusty hike is well worth the effort


So, there I was. Hiking as fast as I could at 9,642 feet above sea level. This was a spooky, surreal and spiritual place. This is America’s Stonehenge, the famous Medicine Wheel, high in the mountains between Lovell and Sheridan.

And I was totally alone. The sun was going down. It was breezy and getting cool. My chest ached from walking along this lonely ridgeline as fast as my 61-year old legs could take me.

It was September 2007. I had been trying to drive from Jackson to Gillette in one day. Along the way, I also was hoping to to visit the Medicine Wheel for the first time.
