A Different Kind of Rock Garden

A very high altitude rock wall

bordering a road less traveled,

overlooking an alpine meadow and timber blow-down,

giving color and grace to a sacred place:

a rock garden for the spirit.

During our recent travels to Wyoming we visited this National Historic Landmark in the Bighorn Mountains.  The 75 foot diameter medicine wheel, at an elevation of 9,642 feet, is thought to be about 700 years old and built by the Crow Indians.

It was a very moving experience to hear a native American man chanting prayers there while viewing a state-of-the-art communications structure in the near distance.
