Jedediah Strong Smith
“Diah”, as his friends called him, stood 6’1″. He was a religious man and abstained from drinking, smoking or swearing. Unlike many mountain men, he was literate and carried a Bible and kept a journal. Smith is credited with blazing the western half of the Old Spanish Trail, a 1,230 mile trade route between Santa Fe and California.
