Step Back In Time When You Walk Through Wyoming’s Historic Guernsey Ruts

Wyoming’s history is fascinating. Our wild and remote state was once such a mystery. When it was part of the Oregon Trail, many migrants fell in love with the scenery and the way of life, and began to settle here in the Cowboy State. Many more continued on towards the West Coast. You can actually see evidence of the massive migration when you visit the Oregon Trail Ruts Historic Site.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
