Nails did


Karen and motorhome

Karen and Oregon trail

Oregon trail

The first thing on the agenda this morning was a trip to the manicurist, Karen has broken 2 nails and its almost an emergency. Ha.

After all of that excitement we headed east on I84. It was another beartiful drive today with lots of sunshine.

We soon came to a place where we could view the actual Oregon Trail! It was quite a tiny road for the 3 miles up to the site.

They had a nice walking trail with story boards about life back when the trail was in use. It's hard to imagine now how they left Missouri and basically walked all the way out here for a better life. They were a hardier bunch back then for sure.

If you can see the depression in the earth there, that is where the Oregon Trail is located.
