No to Antelope and Not associated with or very close to (as far as I know) the Oregon Trail

Edit: May be close to an alternate route of the OT, but I have to admit to not knowing facts about the OT in this area. If a story I remember hearing as a child is correct and I recall it correctly, then may be close to an alternate route of the OT.

I thought so! That narrows it down considerably . If I remember right you guys have done some rides that tracked along the route ?

When you alternate route are you referring to the Meek Cutoff?

Not Meek Cutoff. Had to google "Meek Cutoff" to even know where it was. Not Silver City either.

Will post an additional picture later today or tomorrow that should narrow it down.
