Turn right (east) on Old U.S. 14 (I-90 Frontage Road) to the Vore Buffalo Jump and the Northeast Wyoming Information Center (note the change in signs between 2008 and 2010). The Vore Buffalo Jump is a major archaeological site located between Old U.S. 14 and Interstate 90 on the north side of the freeway. Discovered when the Interstate 90 freeway was being constructed in the early 1970s, the Vore Buffalo Jump is "a natural sinkhole that was used as a bison trap from about 1500 to 1800 A.D. Buffalo were driven over the edge of the sink hole as a method for the Native American tribes to procure the large quantities of meat and hides needed to survive the harsh prairie winters." Students and scholars frequent the site to excavate old bones and continue to find the remains of animals. A visitors center and excavation site building (opened in July 2011) are available on site for visitors for a nominal fee. Photos taken 07/05/08 and 08/13/10.
