July 23

We left Scottsbluff and drove to Fort Laramie National Historic Site in eastern Wyoming. This was initially a trading post in the early 1800’s which became a U.S. Army fort. The Plains Indian War started here when 30 soldiers were massacred when they tried to arrest an Indian for stealing a cow. Much of the fort’s buildings are still standing and they have been filled with period furnishings. One of the buildings called “Old Bedlam” is the oldest building in Wyoming. We stayed in the city RV park in Wheatland, Wyoming.
