The Legend Rock

The lady with the snake skin

In half dark little office space, near Boysen park

Talks about a retired life:

2 men-and-a daughter in her life

And a place in Hot Springs and Thermopolis

Cottonwood creek, Earth and Spirit.

Take the HWY toward Meeteetse

Turn left, at Hamilton Dome

At the cross-road, stay West

Toward Cottonwood Creek,

Watch-out for the two cattle guards

Turn left (just at the 2 cattle guard)

Follow the road, until you reach the Fork

Stay Left

The road leads to a key:

The Gate to the Rock

In summer it is all Yellow ochre-Green

Open and Waiting - the pungent Sagebrush

It waits for the wind-river guests, the waterfowl, the meadowlark…

On the site-trail:

Meandering low, the sandstone rocks swell up high

Stay on the track:

On your Right

The giant rocks and the Story unfolds

Of an abandoned time, magic men and spirit world

Watch for the rattles, though.

They still slither across the sacred land

23 miles West of Wyoming.
