Cool Area. The rock out here is much more finely crystallized than anywhere around Central, and has some patina. Some of the best granite anywhere. The Roof Ranch proper is made up of two formations, each with at least one big roof, all of which face the highway. Some classic and hard Vedauwoo roof cracks reside here.
Drive along the HappyJack highway, which runs north of I-80 and which you can access from I-80 at the summit 15 minutes east of Laramie, and from I-25 a few miles north of Cheyenne. In either case drive to the road marked by mile marker 30, which is down in a little valley. You will see the Roof Ranch. Take the right fork, following the road untill it ends. No easy to describe trail, just walk up to the formations. The dirt road leading back to it is closed from late March to mid May or so, and they do ticket for driving back there, even if the road is bone dry.
