Fort Laramie

Monday, August 21st, 2017 in Wyoming
Fort Laramie

It took me weeks to figure out where to view the eclipse. Using Google street-view, I clicked through miles of dusty backroads throughout Wyoming and Nebraska. Back and forth I went, lining the images up with the eclipse map and then figuring out the route to get to that location. I had my eye on three rest areas, two truck stops, and about five quiet but charming looking dirt roads. In the end, I decided I needed facilities. Toilets, gift shop, parking. That kind of thing. In the end I decided on either Fort Laramie National Historic Site or Scottsbluff National Monument.

It’s Memorial Day and for today’s hike I decide to return to Lumpy Ridge to hike the Black Canyon Trail. My plan is not elaborate, I only hope to repeat the hike I did two weeks ago along the Black Canyon Trial.

I arrived at the Sheraton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire a day early. Since I don’t have to leave for Appledore Islands until tomorrow, I took this opportunity to relax and explore the town, taking pictures of old houses.
