The history of Interstate 80 between Laramie and Walcott Junction, a section referred to by some as the Snow Chi Minh Trail, will be the focus of the December lecture at the Wyoming State Museum on Thursday, December 14, at 7 p.m. The lecture, based on a recently released book of the same name published by the Wyoming State Historical Society, will be presented by John Richard Waggener, Associate Archivist at the UW American Heritage Center.

The title comes from long-haul truckers who dubbed Interstate 80 (specifically the 77-mile stretch between Walcott Junction and Laramie) the “Snow Chi Minh Trail,” a negative reference to the similarly mountainous roadway
