Pony Express, Wyoming




Right after leaving "Register Cliff" we saw this plague & had to read it "Pony Express". I did a bit of zooming in but you can not quite get all the wording so let me tell you want it does say: "Pony Express Station 1860 - 1861", "XP Centre Star Trail 1860 - 1861". I have always wonder what it would be like to run for the "Pony Express"? I guess at times very dangerous but think of all the excitement & curious moments too!!! Beth ( :

The pony express was probably a very dangerous business. Very rough and tumble! Have a good day ,Beth

That is so interesting. I can't imagine what it would have been like to be a pony express rider. I imagine most of those guys were born with the dare-devil gene.

I cannot imagine being a rider for the pony express. I am sure I would have fallen off the horse.
You're so right. Such a different time of life!

Interesting and a lil scary I think!!! A cool background sky!!!

You visit some cool places!?!
It sure was a time of ponies that was romantic, wasn't it?
We're stopping delivery in Canada, with Community Postal Units being the norm. It's so sad...

Sometimes I think that the Pony Express would be faster then the Postal Service. - I agree it would have been interesting to have been a part of that time in history. What a great place to visit.
