Route: Left Hudspeth’s Cutoff
Approximate Miles Traveled:
Notes about this post: John takes a southwesterly route through the desert to the west of the Great Salt Lake. This is a very barren part of the trail even though it is nearby the Humboldt River. I drove on Utah Highway 30, a two lane road that parallels his trail on the east side and as I got on the highway there was a sign that read “No Services Next 102 Miles”. How the emigrants made this trip is just miraculous!
