Every year the Little Snake River Museum has the opportunity to meet adventurers from across the country and even the world. Often, these people are on trips that one would never imagine, much less complete. From walking across the country to completing the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route to riding horseback from Canada to Brazil, these brave souls always come with a story to tell. Here are a few of our most recent extreme travelers:

 Tour Divide 2015- Racers from all over the world ride from Canada to Mexico

For several years, the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route passed directly by the museum in Savery. Riders begin this 2,745-mile gravel race in Canada and complete it at a little crossing on the Mexican border.  After coming through the long, hot, and dry stretch from Wamsutter, riders arrived thirsty, hungry, and ready for some refreshing drinks or snacks at the museum before heading on their way.

The route has moved a bit to the east, so the museum sees fewer bikers, but it's always a pleasure to meet one of these resilient  riders and hear their stories.

Michele Miani from Italy was the first racer to come through the museum.

Joe Dean from Wisconsin takes a break.

Eric Morton checks out the route. He prefers a map over a GPS, saying, "It won't run out of batteries."

Filipe Leite is riding horseback from Canada to Brazil

On July 8, 2012 Filipe Masetti Leite left Calgary, Canada to begin an epic journey across Canada, America, and South America. In total, the trip will be over 9,000 miles through nearly 15 countries. This adventure fulfills a longtime dream held by Filipe and his father, inspired by another famous horseback ride made by Aime Tschiffelly in 1925 when she traveled from Argentina to Washington, D.C.

Felipe visited the LSR Museum in September 2012 and expected to arrive in his final destination of Brazil in 2013. To find out more about Filipe and follow his journey you can check out his Journey America Facebook and his OutWildTV Journal.

Yoshi was walking from Brooklyn, New York to Eureka, California to honor a dear friend.  He left New York in March in a snowstorm and came by the museum on July 4th. You can follow Yoshi's travels on his website  or on his facebook page.  Just search for Tokyo Circus to see what he is up to now.

Pascal Stauble halfway though his journey

Pascal Stauble has cycled throughout the world. Originally hailing from Switzerland, Pascal has cycled in Europe, Africa, and North America, but it was his journey throughout the Western United States and Canada that brought him to the Little Snake River Museum. Pascal dedicated the summer and fall of 2013  to the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, a trip that will take him six months to complete. Pascal plans on arriving in San Diego in the beginning of December 2013 before returning home to Switzerland to continue his work as a psychotherapist.

Fort Collins Cyclists grab some shade at the Museum.

Taylor Stone, John Akira Harrold, and John Wolfstone Trautwein decided to take a bike ride...from Fort Collins, Colorado to the West Coast! The three friends found the museum on accident in August 2013, but they enjoyed their visit, even coming back for the Outdoor Movie Night. Overall, the journey will take these experienced outdoorsmen through multiple states, including Alaska by the end of summer 2013.

For as long as their sons can remember, the Clark family has been biking different trail sections across the United States. In August of 2013, the Clark's left the museum ready to conquer the Colorado portion of the Continental Divide bike trail.
