Close up of one type of Pony Express trail marker

My friend Kathy remarked that I hadn’t posted my planned routes for this ride, so I thought I’d post them now. I’ve broke it up into four segments of roughly equal lengths of roughly seven-day segments.  The exception is the last leg, from Casper to Salt Lake City. I could find no good breaking point in there, so I just lumped weeks four and five together.


Segment 1: St. Joseph, MO to Kearney, NE:

Segment 2: Kearney, NE to Bridgeport, NE:

Segment 3: Bridgeport, NE to Casper, WY:

Segment 4: Casper, WY to Salt Lake City, UT:
