Despite the passage of time, weather and new growth, The Oregon Trail is easily recognized here in Guernsey.
Also here in Guernsey is Register Cliff, a rock wall in an encampment where pioneers on the trail left their mark.
Many of these adventurers took the time to create precise incised Roman style letters, with serifs. Look at this exquisite penmanship!
G.O. Willard here, left the safety and comfort of Boston for what must have been the adventure of a lifetime.
Soldiers too, left their mark. Some how all this makes history real for me. To learn this back in history class just didn't make an impression on me. Seeing these etched names and the deep wagon rut is proof that it all happened.
Guernsey State Park and reservoir was also a pleasant surprise. We checked out the many campgrounds and would definitely try to stay here the next time we pass through this area.
