Wednesday in Wyoming - November 27, 2019

oregon trail wagon ruts
For me, these wagon ruts are among the most memorable sights along the Oregon Trail. Can you imagine how many wagons must have traveled this route to carve ruts that deep? While it's true that limestone is a relatively soft rock, it's still rock.


The ruts are now preserved as a Wyoming state historic site.


  1. Amazing. It boggles the mind just how much they were able to do with so very little, but fortitude and faith they would succeed.

    1. I doubt I'd have been a very good pioneer, which is one of the reasons I admire my maternal grandparents' decision to leave Europe and everything they knew to come to the States. That took courage.
