Ames Brothers Pyramid, Buford Reviews

  • A bit out of the way but we'll worth it! Beautiful scenery. Very cool location.

  • Interesting story behind the brothers but it isn't available at the site unless you arelucky enough to meet up with a railroad enthusiast. Beautiful view at the site. Wouldn't go back again, other locals close by I would spend more time at.

  • Definitely worth a trip to see this interesting monument. We visited in mid March. The roads to the monument were a bit tricky with the snow so I might recommend going later in the season but not far off the main road and definitely worth a visit.

  • What is it ?? πŸ—ΏπŸ—ΏKnown as the 9th wonder of the world. 🌍🌍 Did aliens build it ?? πŸ‘ΎπŸ‘ΎπŸ‘½πŸ‘½ Or did the railroad build it ?? πŸš‚πŸš‚ We may never know. πŸ€”πŸ€” What I do know, is that it is a cool and quirky stop off I-80. Good luck finding it. ☘☘☘

  • A little off paved road, but lots of WY is that way. Worth the trip .
