The book Sneetches is about one class of Sneetches desperately seeking to retain its exclusiveness while the other class seeks just as desperately to pierce it. This microbox Sneetch is by itself so it won't have that desire and is located in Vedauwoo Recreation Area. Vedauwoo is a rather secluded rocky oasis in southeastern Wyoming, filled with dense pine forests and aspen groves. It is a great place to visit and say hello to the only content Sneetch around. There is a $5 day use fee, and a nice campground for $10/night.
From Laramie drive east on I80 for about 12.5 miles and exit #329, then go north on Vedauwoo Road for 1 mile. Turn left into the Vedauwoo Recreation Area, staying on the paved road toward Lower Parking area. Continue past the Turtle Rock Trail and park at the Box Canyon Trail.
Head north on the asphalt Box Canyon Trail for about 100 yards to a Y jct. Take the right fork and go another 100 yards to where the asphalt trail bends left and a gravel trail continues straight. Walk west on the gravel trail about 50 yards to a bench near a wooden bridge. Cross the bridge and turn left at 170 and walk 20 steps to a large pine tree in front of many boulders. Look behind the tree at its base and the camo microbox is under rocks and pine needles. Please re-cover well.
