Pony Express Museum, we went to the Remington Nature Center. The Remington Nature Center is a mile or two northwest of downtown St Joseph, right on the banks of the Missouri River. We really enjoyed the Remington Nature Center and their fantastic exhibits.
One of the connections I was able to make concerned Fort Buenaventura in Ogden, Utah. Joseph Robidoux was a fur trader and the founder of St Joseph. Joseph Robidoux and his family were uniquely tied with the settling of the west, because many of them were early trappers and mountain men. In fact, the Robidoux clan founded a string of forts and trading posts across the inland west, including Fort Buenaventura, later to become Ogden, Utah.
