Fremont Indian State Park | Set 1

February 11 & 12, 2011

After driving to Richfield and checking into our hotel early, we headed straight for Fremont Indian State Park. We ended up spending the rest of the day there until it got dark and then we returned on Saturday for another full day of exploring the park. Instead of boring you with our movements throughout the day, I’m just going to post a bunch of the photos I took with a little info about each. These are in no particular order.
