The Pony Express

You get two posts today as this one is just a bunch of reading and there may be a few of you interested in doing just that.  Click on each image which will make it bigger and easier to read.

Twenty miles past dogtown and chicken acres was a rest area where the old pony express route passed through nearby long ago.  I wasn’t able to read everything for this woman came by and was unable read the signs using her inside voice.  I walked away from her and would read them later after she left.


We followed the Lincoln Highway one year from Illinois westward.  That was a great trip and it was fun looking for these markers all along the way.  I like that time period of American history.


  1. I remember learning about the Pony Express, and thinking all those young riders were so brave and adventurous (I may have been 10). If anyone does, you represent the same spirit of adventure!

  2. Great post! The Pony Express men were very brave a did a very important job!
