Wagons moving across the west
We are preparing for a large move here at Cattle Kate in a few months. Nowadays we can call a moving company or friends and get it done fairly quickly. Which got me thinking about the good old west days and the families and wagons that traveled across the country in hopes of a better life and dreams of riches.
The Oregon trail was the interstate of the old west but not at all easy to travel. They had to cross rivers, worry about indian attacks, climb steep ascents in rocky terrain. Pioneers risked many injuries with overturned and runaway wagons. It is amazing to the me the battles and severe risks that endangered their lives on a daily basis.
I know this move will not be easy, but at least it is not in a wagon across vast country with obsticles and threats to my life!
