Pioneer Pass - By Larry Garmezy
Pioneer Pass – After the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869, the quickest route to the gold and silver mines of Montana was by wagon train north from Corinne, Utah along the “Old Bannack Road” which passes over the continental divide between Idaho and Montana. The locals still call it Pioneer Pass. On the left of the image is the route over the continental divide taken by Lewis and Clarke on August 12, 1805, where they were surprised to find a "large and plain Indian road over the pass.” They were surprised; Sacagawea was not. Image size is 13.5" x 36". Custom sizes are available upon request. Exhibition size was five feet long (contact the gallery).
