Prepare for the elements at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 1, during the free interpretive program, “Weather: The Constant Companion.”
Wind, thunderstorms, and an arid landscape were the constant companion of the pioneer traveler. Pioneers heading west along the trail quickly found out just how different the climate and day-to-day weather was from their homes in the east and abroad. Join National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Jones as he uses historical records and diaries in an attempt to reconstruct weather patterns associated with the ill-fated Willie and Martin Handcart companies of October 1856.
The NHTIC proudly presents a summer of afternoon programs on pioneer and Wyoming history. These short interpretive programs, ranging from 20 to 45 minutes, are free and open to the public.
For more information, please contact the NHTIC by calling (307) 261-7780.
