I follow the Oregon Trail Every Day
Follow the Oregon Trail through Boise and end up at....Staples office supply. This Oregon Trail marker is in the parking lot of the store. I actually drive along the Oregon Trail every day to take my daughter to school. As far as I can tell, the route I follow doesn't contain any evidence of the original trail anymore. You can see trail ruts if you head to southeast Boise. The Oregon Trail was one of several paths followed by those who moved out West when it was really the Wild West. I always figure that's why wagon wheels are so preferred as yard art, to acknowledge the Trail.
