The Story Behind These Strange Ruins Hiding Off A Wyoming Highway Is Fascinating

Wyoming’s highways are full of exits that make for fascinating detours, and Exit 24 off I-80 is no exception. Any time I see a historic marker sign, I try to see what’s hiding out, because you never really know what it could be. One great example is the odd charcoal kilns near the old ghost town of Piedmont, not far from Evanston. This Uinta County site is holding on to show those who make the trek just what commerce looked like here 150 years ago.
