Wednesday in Wyoming - January 27, 2021


Fort Laramie new guard house
The first building doesn't look ominous, does it? Despite its ordinary appearance, it was not a place you would have wanted to visit if you were a soldier at Fort Laramie. You see, it's the guard house where prisoners were confined. 

They might have found incarceration preferable to some of the other disciplinary measures, including carrying huge logs on their backs, but I'm not sure about that. what I know is that I wouldn't want to spend much time inside the guard house.

In case you were wondering, the second building, which is still in ruins, was the administration building.

And this concludes our winter visit to Fort Laramie. What's coming next month? I haven't decided yet.
