A last look at Bluff Fort.

This is the last of the pictures inside of the Bluff Fort. Tomorrow I'll show you what I found i and around town.

An old hand hewn watering trough.

Some information on what's here.

One of the few original buildings.

From the other side.

Some construction information.

One of the original colonizers.

A monument listing the original 250 settlers.

A tribute to an all round pioneer woman. She had quite a list of accomplishments.

Inside the meeting hall.

Another view.

This is a recreation of the original trading post, it just opened a few weeks ago and it is based on the original plans.

The remnants of the 1st stone home built in Bluff.

I'm still working on my next destination. There is so much to see and do in this area I don't know which way to turn next to enjoy the good life.


  1. It is always amazing how the early settlers lived and overcame obstacles that today is not even thought of as a way of Enjoying the Good Life. Be Safe.

    It's about time.

    1. I'm pretty we the people of today might fail in living the pioneers life.

  2. Did they get a good WiFi signal there? Do they have any solar installations? How about a nice strong stockade? Hot and cold running water? Big screen televisions? Fresh vegetables? Walk in freezer? Air conditioning? Guess we take a lot for granted, don't we?

  3. Glad they had a tribute to that all around pioneer woman. Back in the day all the credit went mostly to the males even though women worked just as hard or harder than the men.

  4. I'm sure you will come up with something great. Love the pictures.

    1. The question is 'do I have trouble making up my mind'. The answer 'well yes and no'.
