Route of Wagon Trains

—from 1843 to the 1860's —

Wagons and cattle of the Great Migration, led by Marcus Whitman in 1843, descended Sept. 25 into Lone Pine valley.
After nearly a month of travel over the hot dry Snake river plains from Fort Hall near Pocatello, Idaho, the cool climate and lush grass in the later-named Baker Valley provided a rest for all.
The trail route then turned north, ascending Ladd Pass to Grande Ronde valley and the Blue Mountains.
