Fort Brule Monument
Needless to say, I never found the buffaloes I was looking for. I thought I would find them near this place, but they just weren't on the road I thought they would be. In fact, nothing there looked at all familiar, so I think I got the location completely wrong.
I guess it was just complete luck that I found this place. It's called the Fort Brule Monument. There are actually little historical sites all over the place around here, but I haven't seen any quite as interesting as this one.
The important part here is that this isa the site of an actual fort. I didn't know there were any forts around here. This was news to me when I found it by the roadside. It's always fun to come across a piece of actual history like this.
Now this place is just a lonely old stone monument that sites by the side of the road waiting for someone like me to just happen along while out on another little adventure. It's kind of sad in a way. Just think of how many other places like this that must exist throughout the country. They're all just waiting and hoping to be rediscovered.
I'm glad I was one of the people who happened by this little monument. Most people will never share it with the rest of the world. Now that more people know about it, maybe it's not quite so lost to time. This is one place that will be remembered as long as The Everyday Adventurer exists. I'll talk to you later.
