An excerpt from the report: These Indians whom I interrogated had frequently crossed over to the upper waters of the Platte and Snake rivers, and they informed me that the whole country was open, and that there would be no difficulty in moving from Fort Benton, over quite a number of trails, to the emigrant route from the States, via Fort Laramie and South Pass, to Salt Lake; and they described the country as being, for the most part, a very desirable one, excellent for voyaging, and abounding in wood, grass, and water. The voyageur, Hammell, gave me the following account of Cadotte's Pass: Hammell says: "Follow the general course of the Missouri till you strike the Sun or Medicine river, a distance equal to three days' journey of 24 miles each. The road is good, but you have to make such marches as will enable you to meet certain springs, in order to secure good camping places." "Medicine river is followed in the valley some 50 miles, when you reach the mountains. Good roads; timber plentiful, and grass good." He estimates Cypress mountain to be three days' journey from this point, of forty miles each, a little east of north. From that point to the Koutenay country the distance is eight days for Indians with fast horses, and ten days with slow horses. I began, now, to feel a good deal of apprehension in consequence of not hearing from the missing gentlemen who visited the Bear's Paw, and it seriously interfered with my views in regard to sending forward advance parties. I visited to-day the post of the other company, and will take this occasion to describe Fort Benton and Fort Campbell, together with the neighboring country. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving


This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
