Wyoming is filled with lots of old west frontier history. Stop by this cache to learn a bit about the area of the old Camp Carlin and Fort D.A. Russel, now known as F.E. Warren Airforce Base. If you look approximately 3/4 of a mile to the north, you will also see orginal red brick structures dateing back to the late 1800's to early 1900's. Part of this is houseing and part is other facilities that have to do with the base's ongoing operations. The Mapquest does not show the correct placement of the road because it was realigned some time ago (1980??). Just follow your GPS, you will find it ok.
This Cache as well as others in the area, are on a path that will lead you to some of this history. Please check out these other Caches in the area:
Cheyenne--Deadwood Stage starting point
Pole Creek Ranch
Little Bear Station Cache
Ultimately this path will wind up somewhere in the Black Hills(South Dakota) area. Imagine what it was like to travel back then as you journey over this course.
