The 44th annual Fort Seward Wagon Train is making a loop north of Jamestown, giving participants a pioneer experience on the prairie. The ride ends Saturday back at the Fort Seward Historic Site.

The wagon train is traveling about 15 miles each day. Chicago resident Kathy Marchese tells The Jamestown Sun that she and a friend have been training for six months for the ride.
