Independence Missouri, “The Jumping Off Point” (Day 1)

On March 29th, I started in Independence MO, and rode 50 miles (Through the City!) to Lone Elm Campground (Pioneers 1st or 2nd night on the Trail), with a visit to the National Frontier Trails Center.

Virtually visit Mccoy Park in Independence, MO to to learn all about the Oregon Trail and Independence, MO: http://www.nps.gov/oreg/photosmultimedia/mccoy-park.htm
