      We drove first an hour and half northeast of Cheyenne to Guernsey, WY. Here you can see the deep ruts in the rocks that the wagons from travelers created. It gave me chills to stand in those ruts. Just a five minute drive from the ruts is Register Cliff, a large rock where travelers came and carved their names into the rocks. We saw many.   Grange stood with an arm across the small of his back, soldier fashion, and with the other hand made gestures toward this and that of the house, as if pointing out necessary repairs. There were very many. He was a tall, thin, brooding man, slightly stooped from plowing, with skin the deep glossy brown of pecans/5(13).

    As settlers moved in, this Indian Trail was widened, but in the spring and fall heavy rains made the trail extremely muddy and the resulting deep ruts made the trail almost impassable. To improve the trail, the worst places in the roadbed were filled with stones and dirt, and logs and heavy branches were laid crossways to raise the roadway. By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer “The Wagon Master,” a oil by CM Russell, is one of my favorite paintings. A print of it hangs in my living room, and every time I consider the story Charles Russell is portraying, I’m reminded of two important choices we make in life: leadership and community.

Emigrants carved their names into the face of Register Cliff, and just a couple of miles farther west, wagon wheels gouged deep ruts into sandstone, where wagons were forced to traverse a rock outcrop to avoid marshy areas along the North Platte River.

Right after reaching the other side of the water, wagons had to drive up feet in a little more than a mile and a half, leaving deep ruts up the hill that are still visible today.

Almost. For the most part, those individuals and families traveled in large, spoke-wheeled wagons across all kinds of terrain and in all kinds of weather.

And as they did so, the wagons in front made very deep ruts in the trail, and the wagons in the back fell into those ruts and could not get out.

And just like that, the phrase "stuck in a rut" was born. The driving of large coal wagons along the public highway made deep ruts in the road, and some ingenious person began repairing the damage by laying wooden planks in the furrows. The coal wagons drove over this crude roadbed so successfully that certain proprietors started constructing special planked roadways from the mines to the river mouth.

Ruts carved two to six feet deep in a sandstone ridge on the south side of the North Platte River about a half mile south of Guernsey, Wyo., provide striking physical evidence of the route followed by hundreds of thousands of westbound emigrants on the Oregon Trail during the years The ruts resulted from years of wear by iron wagon-wheel tires, and from intentional cutting by.

Am STUNNED at the positive reviews, including teachers saying they read it to 4th graders.

The thought of traveling from Omaha to Oregon in a wagon pulled by oxen, taking six months, exposed to raw weather, cholera, warlike natives, doesn't sound like fun but enough thousands of wagons made this trek to wear deep ruts in the limestone as they ran past/5().

Crazy Horse: Where My Dead Lie Buried. The new book Crazy Horse: Where My Dead Lie Buried follows the Lakota war chief Crazy Horse (Tasunke Witco) during the final 14 months of his life. The book of historical fiction traces the Lakota leader’s life from the Battle of the Little Bighorn (June) until his death just over a year later on Sept 5,at Camp Robinson, Nebraska.

Wagon wheels formed deep ruts that in some places are still visible today, and those same dirt paths turned into a muddy mess when wet. To meet transportation needs, a variety of types of wagons were available. Some were simple farm wagons, others elegant private carriages.

Stagecoaches provided public transportation. More thanpeople traveled the Oregon Trail during the 19th century—so many that there are spots where wagon ruts are still visible.

Even though the land seems barren, there are many sites that hold musket balls, arrowheads, and coins. Joe Swanson keeps the trail ruts, made when oxen and wagons traveled side-by-side on his farm mowed for visitors.

Stalled wagons became obstacles that forced men around them and stopped supply wagons and artillery columns. Then came the sun, which would bake the deep ruts into canyons of concrete, where horses would break their legs and wagons their wheels." (Richard K.

The eventual standardization of railroad gauge in the U.S. was due far less to a slavish devotion to a gauge inherited from England than to the simple fact that the North won the Civil War. The trails were narrow and rough with stones and deep holes.

Settlers used the same trails with their wagons. Difficulties included steep hills and getting stuck in the mud. Wagons were unloaded and pulled out of the mud.

Because of the deep ruts, stones and holes wagons broke down on the trails. fording a river in high water.

The ruts are impressive indeed - still more than a foot deep after years. The register cliff is fine too, but didn't pack the emotional impact that I suppose I'd expected.

Since then they have been found in many places around the world, and their appearance is generally assumed to have been caused by the.
