Fort Robinson, Nebraska, Arrival
At one time, it housed 12,000 cavalry horses and 4,000 mules. The next two days, mules Brick and Cracker are calling it home. We have arrived at Fort Robinson, Nebraska.
Brick and Cracker have traveled 120-plus miles in the last 5 days so they’re ready for 2 days off. The folks at Fort Robinson have been super putting us up. The plan now is to post some photos of the week then head out Tuesday morning toward Lusk, Wyoming.
Here are some photos of our Fort Robinson arrival. I’m working up some great posts you’ll enjoy. Now, though, it’s time for grass for the mules and coffee for the man.
