Wyoming Historical Society Trek

The Castle on Guernsey State Park's North Bluff
Saturday morning I will be visiting with members of the Wyoming Historical Society as they go on their annual trek.
Great Views are all Around at the Castle
This year the Society is treking through Platte County. I will be joining the group at the North Bluff Castle, then give a short presentation about the Civilian Conservation Corps and the building of the park over on the other side in the Museum.

After the Museum, the group will head up to Hartville for lunch and then tour mining and historical sites at the old Sunrise mine.
The Spectacular CCC Museum
I am looking forward to being a part of this great group as they take a look at sites in  Platte County.

For those that are interested, here is the link for my book on the building of the park. It is available in softcover or as an eBook although because of the nearly 200 photos I think the physical softcover book is better. Take a look and read the free pages. The book is also available at the Museum, Guernsey Visitor Center, and the Hartville Museum/Visitor Center and at multiple area bookstores and tourist stops.
