BEAUTIFUL, I MUST CONFESS. CARRIE: THE OREGON TRAIL
BROUGHT PEOPLE OUT WEST. BARRY: DIDN’T IT BEGIN IN
INDEPENDENCE, MISSOURI? CARRIE: YEAH AND IT WENT
ALL THE WAY TO OREGON CITY! THAT’S WHERE THE TRAIL STOPS. THE AREA WAS EXPLORED BY
THE FAMOUS LEWIS AND CLARKE. THE DALLES AND BLUE MOUNTAINS
WERE LANDMARKS ON THE TRAIL, FOR NEARLY 2000 MILES
PEOPLE TRAVELLED THROUGH RAIN, SNOW, AND HAIL. THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY
IS THE REGION AT THE END, PIONEERS HUNTED THEIR OWN
FOOD AND MADE NEW FRIENDS. ♪ BOTH: COAST TO COAST,
