Scotts Bluff in Nebraska was the second most described landmark in diaries, journals, and letters from emigrants along the Oregon Trail, the California Trail, and the Mormon Trail - second only to Chimney Rock. Over 250,000 pioneers camped at the base of Scotts Bluff and journeyed through the pass. This presentation features the author’s photographs of Scotts Bluff at the base as well as from the top of Scotts Bluff. There are numerous pictures of prairie schooners (covered wagons), a map showing the beginning and ending of the Oregon Trail in relation to Scotts Bluff, and an example of how emigrants signed and dated the rocks as they passed by Scotts Bluff. This presentation is easily adapted to a variety of grade levels.
