Bent’s Old Fort
I read a lot about Bent’s Old Fort over the winter and was really excited to visit. It was a fascinating stop along the Santa Fe Trail on the frontier in the old west, a place to find a tiny scrap of “civilization” and get a good meal and a trading post with anything you could want or need. Although this is a recreation as the original fort burned down, it is a very cool stop indeed. It is near La Junta, Colorado.
