On the Oregon Trail

Taken near Baker City, Oregon in October 2015, this photograph shows a vintage covered wagon placed on the original Oregon Trail ruts. It is as if one were suddenly cast backwards in time to 1843-1880 when thousands of similar covered wagons wended their way across America seeking a new life in the promised fertile West.
