A Unique Natural Wonder In Wyoming, The Ayres National Bridge Is Truly Remarkable
When thousands of migrants made their way through Wyoming on the Oregon, California and Mormon Trails, they passed through several natural wonders that soon became landmarks and the first “roadside attractions” around. These landmarks included Independence Rock, Fossil Butte, and the often overlooked Ayres Natural Bridge. The Ayres National Bridge is located in Converse County between Glenrock and Douglas, and it’s worth a visit to see this oddity for yourself.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
