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!

What an amazing sight! I can not imagine riding on the old wagons across the country! Great shots, Beth! Enjoy your day!

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!!

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…

North Bend Park, Virginia

North Bend Park, John H. Kerr Dam, Virginia. It was kind of rainy, kind of sunny. partly cloudy. It was a bit iffy, but we still made time to kayaking. Had a ball. The clouds & sun were playing on the waters, what great times to take photos. ( O : =  
This area has so many different campground on different parts of the dam/lake. I believe this is the 3 different one we have visited so far, I'm sure the hubby has the others in the plans for later on... never know what he has up his selves. giggles. ( ; 

Enjoy enjoy the vlog from that day. Thank you for stopping by, do take care. Beth ( :
