Notes about this post: After crossing the Green, the emigrants headed off across the barren Sublette Cutoff. Travelers, always in a hurry, would refine the Sublette route into additional cutoffs with names like Slate Creek, Kinney, Hams Fork and Dempsey. Many wagon trains split up at Parting of the Ways as members disagreed on the best route to follow. John took the Hams Fork route.
