Equinox is teaming with Stratum Unlimited, Inc. to develop an interpretive plan for Castle Gardens, a prehistoric rock art site in Wyoming. Castle Gardens, a remote site in the high plains of central Wyoming, is a prehistoric rock art site that has national significance. This site was the convergence of several ancient tribal lands, including ancestors of the Crow, Arapahoe and others. Those on a vision quest would not eat or drink water for days, causing a trance like state that would allow for visions that they believed would provide needed guidance. Rock art was created as a result of the vision. Natives believed spirits, rather than the individual, were responsible for the drawings. Equinox is helping to explain the cultural, spiritual, geological, natural resource, and historical significance of the site.
