We stopped for scenery:
We stopped for history:
|Much of our route followed the Oregon Trail. We stopped a couple of times along the way.|
|Fort Bridger - site of the first schoolhouse in Wyoming as well as a fur trading outpost.|
|Visiting the Golden Spike - where the first transcontinental railway was completed. Unfortunately the golden spike is no longer at the site, it is in California.|
We stopped for random stuff on the side of the road
|Farm equipment museum on the roadside|
|We didn't expect to see rockets in Utah|
Finally we arrived in Colorado after 1500 miles and 5000+ feet in elevation gain.
I prefer the sign on the right than the one on the main highway below.
