Continuing the Journey West

Just a few miles from where you’re standing, the emigrants would come to the first of several trail “splits” that would take them to a crossing on the Green River where they would camp for the evening.

Even with South Pass behind them, Oregon or California-bound travelers still faced more than half their journey and the roughest traveling portion of the trail. Emigrants headed to Utah were slightly better off as they were less than a month away from journey’s end.

As you continue your journey, think about the courage of the people who passed through this country and settled half our nation.
