Since shortly after we crossed the border from South Dakota into Wyoming we have more or less been following the Bozeman Trail which was designed to be the shortest overland route from Ft Laramie to the Virginia City gold fields.  John Bozeman was a major figure in the Euro-American settlement of Montana. He originally traveled west to look for gold but ultimately gained fame as a trailblazer and a town builder. And then there’s the question of how he died. Historians are still trying to solve the mystery.
