As winter slowly begins to fade behind us, the thoughts of spring and summer activities fill the brain.

Hiking is an activity many Wyomingites and visitors to the Cowboy State find to be relaxing and peaceful. The scenery can be breathtaking!

One such example would be the hike to Medicine Bow Peak. The hike is 7.4 miles to complete the loop.

As you begin your climb, you will rise above the lakes in the first 1.1 miles. Your work really begins with a 1,000 foot climb in the next 8 tenths of a mile.

Keep an eye open you may run into a herd of Big Horn Sheep. They are known to inhabit the area.
