On the Trail TodayWhichever direction your travels take you, you're going to have a similar experience to what the California-bound immigrants had. You're going to see the same country, except for the towns and ranch meadows. The big difference, though, is that you'll be traveling at a much faster pace. From here, you can be in California in a couple of hours. For the emigrants, it was as much as month's journey. As you drive and look at the area, think about those people who plodded along day after day, through the thick alkali dust - headed toward dreams of gold or a new life.
