Fur Traders’ Route (Peter Skene Ogden)

Peter Skene Ogden’s Fur Trappers route. Peter Skene Ogden’s map of the Great Salt Lake and the Snake River country. It also shows Ogden’s route of 1828-29, the year he discovered the Humboldt River of Nevada. The Great Salt Lake and Bear River can be seen at the lower right-hand corner if you put the side marked “north” at the top. Carl Wheat, Mapping the Trans-Mississippi West
