Pyramid and Lincoln in the Desert, Laramie, Wyoming
Leave the I-80 freeway and drive out a dirt road into the desert. Presently you see this ahead:
The plaque on this pyramid, featuring an Ames brother, was designed by the artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
Once there was a town, Sherman, WY, there. Now there is only the desert in this view from the base of the pyramid.
A few miles away, along the freeway, is this statue of Abraham Lincoln. He doesn't look too happy to be bricked up....
