Oregon Trail Ruts, Wyoming




It is fun to think of the treks these folks had to take ...that their wagon wheel trails are still there today. A very eerie feeling. A storm was brewing, We high tailed it out there!! Beth ( :

Can you imagine being caught out in that storm with only a Conestoga wagon for shelter?!

Back then if you moved out west, that was the last your family would ever see you. Beautiful shots!

Wagon Wheel trails? How cool is that?!!!

I'm with you trying to imagine the hardships for folks back in the days of covered wagons and such with wild guides to get them to their destinations.
Oh how neat is that?!?

Oh, I'd love to see the ruts! I just can't imagine how they did it. I've driven through the mountains and just can't fathom how they made it with a team and wagon. Great photos, Beth!

If you only knew how many books/memoirs/diaries I have read of real people going west. I don't know how they survived. Loved seeing these...

I have read limitless times about deep ruts in ancient Roman roads . . until this very moment, i never considered people doing the same in our national story . . gives me goosebumps just to consider all the people, with their life stories creating the ideal of Freedom . . . . wowzer. Thanks. (You So Totally Rock!)

I cannot imagine traveling across the continent in/on or walking beside a covered wagon! Very HARD!
I think the trails are fascinating and would love to see them some day. You sure do get to tour the country- lucky!!

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
