How cool. I can remember reading a couple of books about the Pony Express when I was a kid. I wonder if I imagined the buildings looked like this. ;)

That is definitely a blast from the past to be thinking about the pony express. Can you imagine having that assignment to ride a horse carrying the mail across all those miles? Unbelievable.

It's hard to imagine how difficult it was to ride the Pony Express. Fine pictures.

I wonder what the riders would think of these places being preserved today.

I love these old buildings and the history behind them. If they could only see how we get mail now! Have a nice week, Beth!
Toadstool is near Chadron. It is the Nebraska badlands. Really cool geographical formations. Here is a link.http://www.nebraskatravels.com/toadstool-geologic-park.html

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
