Sesquicentennial of the Mormon Trail - Field Trip
Fort Bridger, Wyoming to Salt Lake City, Utah
Aug 23/24, 1997

This expertly-guided field trip took participants from Fort Bridger, Wyoming to Salt Lake City, Utah over the course of two days with most members staying overnight in Evanston, Wyoming. Because of OCTA's and Utah Crossroads' prestige and reputation for responsibility as well as the personal influence of individual chapter members, it was possible to gain access to many stretches of trail on private land that have had to be closed to casual visitors. John Eldredge and Roy Tea led the group on this well-attended trip.

A number of additional pictures from the trip will be added. If you have photographs of the field trip or commentary you would like to contribute please contact your Utah Crossroads Webmasters.
