The Ames Monument is located between Cheyenne and Laramie off of I-80. It was finished in 1882 and sits near the highest elevation crossed by the original transcontinental railroad route. It stands 60 feet tall and the base is 60 feet across. It was built by the @unionpacificrailroad in honor of Oakes and Oliver Ames who were financiers for UP.

🚂Found ourselves in Sacramento for the day and hung around Old town during thr afternoon. Loved how preserved this place was from the mid-1800s. It was the fastest growing city on the west coast during the gold rush, where the Transcontinental Railroad ended and also where Wells Fargo was founded. So much history packed into a few streets🚂

Who knew? This is the thousand mile tree just a couple blocks down the canyon from Henefer UT it marks 1000 miles from where the railroad started it's Western build in Omaha. The original tree, 90' tall was there when they built the #transcontinentalrailroad in 1869 but died in 1900. The Union Pacific Railroad replanted the tree in 1982 it is now 30 feet tall. When I took Patty and Steve on an excursion last week I saw the tree for the first time and Steve took this photo for me as we were driving by. The real interesting thing is that the railroad goes past both mine and Steve's houses.

Time to pick goji berries. Chinese laborers on the trans continental railroad got these started in the west. Quite hardy. #transcontinentalrailroad #healthyfood #wyoming

Remember that one time you raced a train on a bicycle; I do, and I won.

I hope one day you find someone who looks at you the way I look at these mountains.
It's hard not to think of all the struggles and suffering people have endured on these mountains when hiking up here. From the masses of Chinese men who worked and died to create the transcontinental railroad through the mountain range or families like the Donners and the Reeds who risked their lives trying to get to the soil I was lucky enough to be born on, these rocks have seen a lot. I am blessed to call this place my home and I'm honored to be even a small part of its history.
