Jedediah Smith’s Trail – Great Salt Lake
“Coming to the point of the ridge [Timpie Point] … I saw an expanse of water Extending far to the North and East. … The Salt Lake a joyful sight was spread before us. … I had traveled so much in the vicinity of the Salt Lake that it had become my home of the wilderness. After coming in view of the lake I traveled East [and] found a spring of fresh water and encamped.”
Jedediah Smith, June 27, 1827
Here is the list of “Salt Lake to Southern California Road” markers I have come across.
