Oregon Trail and Resettlement

"Passing through the timber that lies to the east of [Oregon City], we beheld Oregon and the Falls of the Willamette at the same time. We were so filled with gratitude . . . we stopped, and in this moment of happiness recounted our toils, in thought with more rapidity than tongue can express or pen write.” Joel Palmer, Journal of Travels, 1847
