Take a historic Wagon Train trip this summer
April 29, 2005

Imagine riding in a wagon train across the Oregon Trail a hundred and thirty years ago through Wyoming. Today you can relive a portion of that experience on a five-day expedition with Wagons A+cross Wyoming. This isn't a trek with a long line of wagons, but a small group of one or two wagons and companion riding horses leisurely riding across many portions of the actual path of the Lander Cut-Off of the original Oregon Trail. These 5-day trips take place during July and August and cover approximately 40 miles.

This is a family-run operation by people who love history. It's a slow-paced trip traveling through a wide variety of terrain with stops at points of historic significance. The trip passes marked and unmarked graves of pioneers who didn't finish the long journey along the Oregon Trail. The wagons following the Lander Cut-off, crossing the high desert country, climbing up and over Witherspoon Pass, and dropping to LaBarge Creek on the other side of the pass.

Guests travel in historic iron-rim wheeled freight wagons pulled by draft horses. Guests can ride in the wagon, ride alongside the wagons on saddle horses, or walk as many pioneers did. They stop as often as needed during the day's travel for taking photos, changing riders, or a lunch stop. Camp is moved and the wagons travel 4 of the 5 days, so the view is awesome and new every morning. This trip is a wonderful experience for those wanting to relive old west history.

Call early to ensure your reservation. For those who would like a unique old-fashioned touch for their wedding, Kay and Leslie offer ‘Weddings Across Wyoming’ event and buggy service. For more information, visit the Wagons A+cross Wyoming web site:
