(Cheyenne, Wyoming-AP) -- There will be a new place to camp in Wyoming for those making the trek along the Mormon Pioneer Trail.
The Wyoming Board of Land Commissioners approved a five-year lease yesterday for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Fremont County.
Church officials want to install fire rings, portable toilets, water wells and fencing to keep out cattle on the ten-acre parcel.
Last year, 12-thousand trekkers pulled carts along the Mormon Trail from the Sweetwater River west to church-owned Rock Creek Hollow.
