Wednesday in Wyoming - November 20, 2019

Laramie Peak
One of the major landmarks on the Oregon Trail was Laramie Peak. Although it's not the highest mountain in Wyoming, it is the highest peak in the Laramie Range and is high enough to be seen from up to 100 miles away.

As beautiful as the mountain is, it probably filled pioneers with at least a bit of dread, since it signaled the most difficult part of the journey.

If you'd like to learn more about Laramie Peak, Wikipedia has an article.

While I was searching for information about the peak, I discovered that it's a popular climbing spot. So, if you're a climber and are coming to Wyoming, here's that link. I plan to stay on level ground.
