Summer is winding down for us now in Colorado Springs, and we spent the past few weeks on vacation. But now we’re back in town. And so at last…a new post!
I’m a sucker for those brown road signs. You know the ones, posted along American freeways and highways, designed to point the way to significant cultural sites and historic markers.
So when we stopped for the night in Rock Springs, Wyoming on a recent road trip between Colorado Springs and the Pacific Northwest, I just had to follow the signs to downtown Rock Springs.
And I’m glad I did. Rock Springs is a charming small town of around 25,000, with roots in coal mining. Here are just a few snapshots for you of Rock Springs’ historic downtown. You can read a short history of Rock Springs’ original City Hall (now the Rock Springs Historical Museum and one of the buildings in the slideshow) here.
