We stopped at Ft. Laramie, WY to check out the old military fort built originally around 1860. It was built as a trading post for the pioneers then eventually taken over by the military. We did not have much time unfortunately as we knew the weather was going to get bad and wanted to be in Rawlins before it did so we were there only about an hour and a half when you really need a full day. It was a large place.
We found it very interesting with several of the building restored and the inside set up as they would have been during that time.
The 3 pics above are of the calvary barracks outside and in.
