A big thank you to Jeff at the wonderful Interpretive Center in Oregon City at the end of my journey! Although Oregon City was the destination for the pioneers, it really was just the beginning of their adventure out west. The pioneers had conquered the physical and mental challenges that the Oregon Trail presented, but settling in Oregon presented a new set of challenges.
Now at the end of this adventure, I want to thank all of those who have followed me along my journey over the past two summers and all of those who provided support! It would not have been possible without family, friends, sponsors, and the students – thank you!
