Photo Tours



These tours consist of a series of photos taken at, or near, most of the markers on each trail and show points of interest and the terrain in the area. We find them fun when we can’t get out on the trails and for folks to see what’s in an area before heading out.  If you would like the BIG Picture of Trails then please use the following link to an amazing NPS map which shows the Emigrant Trails starting in Iowa and Missouri and ending on the west coast.
