Wednesday in Wyoming - April 3, 2019

Earlier this year, I shared some pictures from Fort Bridger and mentioned that the museum, although small, is fascinating. While you might expect it to depict life at Fort Bridger - and it does - it also highlights aspects of the pioneers' journey.

This exhibit shows one of the most unfortunate aspects of travel along the Oregon Trail: death. The causes were varied, but in this case, there's no question of how the pioneer died.

I was struck by the fact that someone left a warning for others and wonder if that would happen today.
