Season Preparations

As the weather starts to warm, Fort Laramie is buzzing with activity as workers prepare for our upcoming busy season. Hence, the lack of an e-Bugler in April-- sorry!

As I was out on the grounds the other day I noticed nature and our local wildlife making their preparations for the season too-- A goose wading in the Laramie river and a bird amongst the branches of a Cottonwood treetrees were sprouting new growth, flowers were blowing in the breeze, green was overtaking the golden colors of the long, cold winter, birds were taking care of their young and enjoying the crisp Spring day. Enjoy the pictures of of some of the wildlife I ran across at Fort Laramie National Historic Site.

Baby bunny by New Guardhouse, bird on ruins, bird on branch with Commissary Storehouse in background, and a turtle swimming in the Laramie river.

Visit Fort Laramie National Historic Site this year and enjoy our wildlife, nature and site firsthand!
