    oregon trail road trip

    this summer, shall we ford the river or caulk the wagon and float it across? (this is actually a mix of the oregon, mormon, and california trails, because we live in california and need to get home eventually)

    Fort Kearney State Park in Kearney, NE. This is a reconstructed stockade -- the outlines of the original foundations of the fort buildings are still extant. We found it most impressive for its enormous mature trees -- many originally planted while the fort was still in commission.

    Chimney Rock National Historic Site in Bayard, NE. The trail up to the rock does close when the visitor center closes, but if you're running behind, you can still get a pretty good view at sunset.

    California Trail Interpretive Center in Elko, NV. We accidentally missed the exit and drove an extra mile or two out of our way just to make the U-turn and get back there -- so glad we did. Incredible little museum.

    Railroad Town at Stuhr Museum in Grand Island, NE. Check in on the tinsmith and buy a handmade tin cup, see how an old sawmill worked, buy candy and soap at the general store, then sit down for an old-fashioned sandwich and sarsaparilla.
