A stop along the Pony Express


I was out on a short work trip and decided to make a quick stop to check out some western history at a national historic site.

 This fort served as a trading post and economic hub, as well as a major stop along the Oregon Trail and Pony Expess

Much of it is now in ruins, and I happened to be the only person there today. Although having the place all to myself was cool, it was also a little eerie.
