Yesterday was our rest day in Casper, Wyoming. Thought I might sleep in but have gotten so used to early days, it was an early day.
Cousin Dave came to pick me up and we were off to see The Oregon Trail exhibit. It also included information on lots more stuff. If I could get my photos, I’d share some of that info. grrrrr
We went for a lunch and then picked up his friend Angel and drove to a rock where the travelers through the area signed their names. Some names are dated back to the 1800s. The rock is a huge piece of granite that sits all by itself in the flatlands. We actually climbed up and down it without any special equipment but I went slow and careful.
After a nice Mexican meal, we were off the The Beach Boys concert. It was a fun show but I was glad they kept it to a 10ish ending as morning would come quickly.

I just read a book on the trail. You are seeing it backwards! There’s a wonderful museum in Baker, Oregon, but you passed it. A wonderful piece of history . Two brothers took a wagon across to recreate the ride! Be safe!
What is the name of the book Jan? After seeing what I have so far, I want to come back by motorized vehicle with Dan to really take some time in these areas.
