I'm a sucker for old roads. Many of the old roads that linked places together in the past are still out there. Once out of use mother nature began her process of healing and returning the roads into the landscape. The above is an example of a 19th century freight and stage road north of Rock Springs, Wyoming. I have added enhancements so you can see the depth better. An enhancement of the cross section of the road is in orange and red arrows show the edge of the seal going into the distance. This connected Rock Springs to South Pass City and Lander, using a segment of the Cherokee Trail of 1850. Such places thrill me as allowing one to actually put oneself in the path. There's something about being able to walk in the actual footprints of those who came before us. This little segment likely was used by famous criminals such as Butch Cassidy and Jack Morrow. If you want to travel time... take out your hiking shoes and walk into the past.
