Indian Brave, the thirty-sixth wood carving in the Trail of the Whispering Giants, honors the first Americans: the Shoshone, Arapaho, and Sioux. Carved in 1980 and given to the State of Wyoming, it is one of 67 in the United States and Canada.
It wasn't easy, but here is what I could read from the sign at the Teepee Fountain: This structure, started in 1903, was created by piping the hot mineral water through a vertical pipe built into a pyramid. As the water exits the top and flows over the structure, it cools and deposits travertine, much the same as the Terraces are formed near the Big Horn Spring within the park (see pics next post). The algae within the water colors the deposits.
