      Extra Info: In 1856 convert immigrants from England and Wales began their journey on foot in eastern Iowa (where rail service from the eastern US ended) to Salt Lake City Utah. There they joined up with other members of the Church of the Latter-day Saints. Since they could not afford horses and wagons, they pulled carts. Thus this trail, starting at this dense prairie, is known as the Handcart trail.

    I really liked your unusual approach to the theme - showing what the settlers were up against instead of an actual historical item. Beautifully photographed.

    I find this an original and effective illustration of the trial. Well done.

    There are so many things I like about this photo - the wonderful detail in the foreground against the blurred trees, the use of B&W to give a sense of times past. Most of all, it beautifully conveys what those early immigrants must have faced as they started their long journey toward Salt Lake City.

    Interesting history, but maybe I would like it more in colors.

    Thanks aoc46 and AC. I tried to portray what must of looked like a wall or obstacle to those who faced crossing hundreds of miles of this scrubby, scratchy entanglement.

    A striking image, and a very creative way of presenting the historic trail. (I'd probably have shown the cliche'd wagon ruts; your idea is much better.)
