On top of the Bighorn Range in Wyoming, a desolate 9,642 feet high and only
reachable during the warm summer months, lies an ancient Native American
construction — an 80′ diameter wheel-like pattern
made of stones. At the center
of the circle is a doughnut-shaped pile of stones, a cairn,
connected to the rim by 28 spoke-like lines of stones.
Six more stone cairns are arranged around the circle, most large enough
to hold a sitting human.
The central cairn is about 12 feet in diameter and 2′ high.
The Medicine Wheel is located in the Bighorn Mountains in
Wyoming, USA, off highway 14A. Elevation: 9,642 feet.
Latitude: 44 degrees 49′ 32″ N.; longitude: 107 degrees 55′ 15″ W.
