Anyone who has spent any time in Southern Wyoming knows about Vedauwoo… note the spelling. When I was looking for a name for our brand, I wanted to pick something that stood apart from other companies out there, was memorable, and represented the spirit of the outdoors behind everything we do.
Vedauwoo (the park) was a perfect inspiration – and was the ONLY choice for my (then) two-year-old son. Having grown up in Wyoming, and spent four great years in Laramie before settling up in Central Wyoming, I had a lot of fond memories of time spent in Vedauwoo – hiking, camping, climbing, and fly fishing. That said, when settling in on the name, I didn’t feel right “taking ownership” of a place I didn’t have any right to claim as my own.
Ultimately I settled on a name INSPIRED BY the park – using an easier to spell version – and VEDAVOO was born.
