Today I took a drive west into Wyoming for a visit to Fort Laramie National Historic Site. Along the way I stopped at the Grattan Massacre Monument.
After my short side trip I moved on to Fort Laramie, stopping first at the Old Army Bridge over the North Platte River.
I parked the car and walked into the fort, passing a concrete monument.
I followed the pleasant Laramie River for a bit,
From the Guardhouse, I headed past the ruins of the Administration Building.
From Old Bedlam, I traveled to the Cavalry Barracks
To end my visit to the historic site, I walked the Confluence Trail. It was a pleasant walk along North Platte and Laramie Rivers. I enjoyed seeing some larger cottonwood trees.
After my walk along the Confluence Trail, I left Fort Laramie proper and headed over to the nearby Mary Homsley grave.
