Pyramid in wind-whipped Wyoming — Ames Brothers Pyramid

Ames Brothers Pyramid

East of Laramie on I-80
Laramie, WY
Roadside monument

The high point of the Transcontinental Railroad was marked by this massive self-serving monument to the money men behind it – one of whom later ended up being kicked out of the Senate for his role in a big-time land scandal. Very American. Very cool. All too literally. Because the wind whips across these wide-open spaces like you wouldn’t believe.
