Finally left Denver arrived at Ft Laramie wyo


Left Denver at about 12:30pm
Made it to Ft Laramie Wyoming to the Army bridge on the North Platte River

This bridge was constructed in 1875.
It is believed to be the oldest bridge west of the Mississippi river. Once the then broad and turbulent North Platte River was spanned, the Cheyenne to Deadwood route was considered the best road to the Black Hills Goldfields.
