This gallery primarily samples the Oregon and California Trails from east to west through contemporary scenes and artifacts. Some areas, especially along roads, have changed significantly.

Many images involve the Pony Express or Lincoln Highway which used part of the same route.

Contemporary scenes along the Mormon Trail are shown from Nauvoo IL across IA. It then paralleled and sometimes joined the Oregon and California Trails.

Related images are in the Vanishing America, Pony Express, Twin Streaks of Rust, St. Joseph MO and Lincoln Highway galleries. Mormon images from UT are in the Lincoln Highway UTAH gallery.

This gallery in a very early stage of development. These images are only offered here. The copyright watermark does not appear.
