Wagon Train Ruts

Wagon Train Ruts

Outside of Baker City Oregon, you can hike on the original wagon train ruts on the Oregon Trail that the pioneers used to travel west. As I hiked along the ruts, seeing a storm on the horizon, I realized how strong and resilient these travelers were on their quest for finding a new life. Many died and faced incredible hardships. I could only think about whether I could make it back to the car before the thunderstorm started.
