WATCH: 8mm Film Shows Rare Look at Life Around Riverton in 1960’s
If you lived near or traveled through Riverton, Wyoming back in the 1960's, this retro video will bring back memories. It's an 8mm film from a completely different era in Wyoming.
There's no info on who this family is. The only YouTube description is this:
This vintage 8mm footage appears to be in and around Riverton Wyoming. There are several scenes of hot springs, rivers, waterfalls, mountains and wildlife.
It appears to be a simple family trip with a stop in Riverton on the way to Yellowstone. There may have been some truck troubles as 3 Wyoming guys and a kid wearing a cowboy hat were gathered around a truck with the hood up. Back then, just about every kid wore a pretend cowboy hat. Good times.
The trip continues with what has to be Yellowstone with geysers and the occasional deer. The completely retro camper on the back of the truck near the end of the video is a real throwback.
In our busy modern world with everyone seemingly with their face buried in electronic gadgets, it's nice to reminded of a simpler time in Wyoming.
