Background

You can almost hear the whoops and cries of "All's set!" as trail hands hitched their oxen to freight wagons carrying cargo between western Missouri and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Follow the Santa Fe National Historic Trail through Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, and New Mexico and you'll find adventure and evidence of past travelers who made this remarkable trip before you!
