INDEPENDENCE ROCK




As we did not have WiFi or Cell Service this is yesterdays post.


Our first stop after leaving Rawlins, WY was 




We then stopped and visited Independence Rock on the Oregon/California Trail in Wyoming. It is where pioneers meet on July 4th knowing they would make their destination before bad weather. While camped here they carved their names in the rock. There are over 5,000 names carved into this rock.

Then guess who decided he could climb the rock as we walked all the way around it.


We then traveled to Lusk, WY for the night.
