Artist's Description

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150

The Oregon Trail was a 2,000 mile long trail which began in Independence, Missouri, and traversed Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon before terminating in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. The Oregon Trail was used by approximately 400,000 people from all walks of life (settlers, farmers, ranchers, miners, soldiers and businessmen) between 1836 and 1869. Of Course, not all 400,00 ended up in Oregon, as many used the eastern part of the Oregon Trail to reach the California, Bozeman and Mormon Trails, stopped in the states through which the Oregon Trail passed, or died along the way. Even after 170+ years, many of the ruts left by wagons with steel rimmed wheels can still be seen in various places along the Oregon Trail. The ruts seen in this photograph are located between Milepost 6 and 7 on Oregon Route 86 east of Baker City, Baker County, OR.
