Wyoming's Trail: A Centennial Appreciation
Wyoming's Trails reminisces an emigration of people across, through and into what was to become Wyoming. The pre-statehood (1890) history begins with Native Americans who came into the Rocky Mountain area as agricultural people and become hunters, "Lords of a Grassland Empire." Early white explorers and mountain men followed the beginning of the 19th century and left their names on forts and geographical features, Fort Laramie, Fort Bridger, Jackson Hole, Bridger Pass, Fitzpatrick Wilderness, and Fremont Peak. Emigrants followed, along with the "Frontier Army." Trails, such as the Oregon Trail, left innumerable memories of hardship, triumphs, and determination. Places of rest and recuperation, such as Fort Laramie, Warm Springs, Independence Rock, and Ice Springs, provided respite from hard travel. Ferries, such as Bridger's Ferry over the North Platte River and the Green River Ferry, aided crossing of large rivers. The crossing of the Continental Divide at South Pass often "hardly matched its historical significance." Remembering the people, events, and sites along Wyoming's trails represents a history of Wyoming before 1890.
