Storms passing over the lake may qreapast up moisture from the lake, dropping it along the storm track as the air masses are pushed up to cross the sfx. The level of the lake has varied as much as twenty feet over the past years. In the lake reached a high level of 4, At that time, pumps were installed to drain the lake into the west desert. Inthe lake reached a historic low level of 4, Another natural feature which has been important to Weber County is the two hot springs within its boundaries.
The ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting springs of Weber County were valued by the Shoshoni Indians for what seemed to be their rejuvenative and health-giving qualities.

At about B. By about B. The bulk of archaeological evidence indicates that human populations first occupied northern Utah during terminal Pleistocene and early Holocene times ca.
Most craigslist washington personals Great Basin native groups were part of the Western Archaic Tradition, an aboriginal lifeway characterized by a broad spectrum hunting-and-gathering economy, highly nomadic camp groups consisting of between six and thirty individuals related by ties of blood and marriage, lack of domesticated plants and animals, and production of a diverse lithic rock tool assemblage.
The prehistoric cultural chronology of Utah includes the Early Archaic period B. Life for most was nomadic. Grinding stones were used for preparation of seeds for food. Baskets, spears, darts, ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting woven cloth were also used by these early peoples. There is evidence of long-term prehistoric trade with Pacific Coast peoples mostly in the form of marine shell beads and ornaments; early marine shell beads in the eastern Great Sex city in delhi date from about B.
The Weber and Ogden rivers and their confluence with ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting Great Salt Lake provided extensive riparian and marshland ecozones for these early inhabitants. These lush wetland settings allowed many Wasatch Front groups to lead a more sedentary lifeway than those natives who occupied more arid areas such as the Great Salt Lake Desert. Both saltwater and freshwater marshes were formed and periodically changed with the lake level.
In large measure, the human culture of this era was devoted to hunting and gathering, with some modifications depending on where in the Great Basin these people generally were located.
Rabbits, skunks, porcupines, coyotes, bobcats, birds, deer, elk, antelope, and bison were all used as sources of food and tools. Roots and bulbs including the sego lily as well as grass and other seeds were eaten. The pinyon nut was widely used. Crickets and grasshoppers often were the objects of group hunts during which thousands of insects were driven into ditches lined with dry grass which was then set afire.
The roasted insects were gathered and then eaten whole or ground into Ssaside meal. Waterfowl were accessible in the marshy areas surrounding the Great Mefting Lake. For the past 2, years it appears that the climate of this region and the level of the lake has been quite similar to that which has been experienced during recent historic times.
Beginning sometime around A. Hunting, gathering, and some raising of corn, squash, and beans seem to have been the basic lifestyle of this culture. Near Warren in Weber County where several sites have wantingg excavated, the excavation yield included corn, bison bones, and "bushels of fish bone. By about A. Anthropologists use the term "Numic" to refer to one of the four representatives of the Uto-Aztecan language stock in western North America.
With the exception of the Comanche, all Numic languages are associated with the Great Basin culture area.
It is believed that these newcomers either drove out or absorbed the Fremont people in the region. Recent archeological explorations have added much to our previous knowledge of the prehistoric inhabitants of Weber County and northern Utah.
The Shoshoni homeland was wabting by numerous Western, Northern, and Eastern Shoshoni groups and included the Snake River country, the Great Basin, and much of present-day Wyoming west of the Rockies. The Shoshoni people were divided into seven groups: The Snake Indians were a group within the Northern Shoshoni, and the. Bannocks were Northern Paiute speakers who lived with the Northern Shoshoni after acquiring the horse. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, all of the Shoshoni groups had a combined total of about 17, people.
Brigham Madsen describes in some detail the relationships among the groups. Although the various Shoshoni groups spoke a similar language, visited with other Shoshoni in friendly exchange, occasionally hunted together, and rarely went to war with each other, they, nevertheless, were quite aware and jealous of the lands they claimed, and they understood the cultural differences between various tribes.
From wantijg Eastern Shoshoni and the Fort Hall Shoshoni and Bannock, who were considered the aristocrats of wanying the Shoshoni because of their large herds of horses, their easy mobility, and their proclivity to war with other Indians, there was a perceptible gradation to a more precarious existence for the Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting in the western regions of the Shoshoni nation or to a less "noble" Indian in the eyes of ethnocentric whites.
While the eastern tribes lived on buffalo meat, live escort reviews tucson western cousins ate whatever could be found in desolate desert areas. Nevertheless, before the coming of the white man, all the Shoshoni ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting rather. Buffalo were available in Idaho and northern Utah areas, salmon and trout thronged the streams, and camas roots abundantly covered the prairies.
In western Utah and throughout Nevada, grass seeds for flour, pinon nuts, and small game provided plentiful food. Emigrants along the trails and Mormon farmers in dominican hottie Great Basin quickly destroyed what had once been a mostly comfortable existence. The Northwestern Shoshoni incorporated aspects of the lifestyles of both their eastern and western kinsmen.
Their horse herds were qomen as large as those of their. Their food-gathering practices included traveling to Wyoming for buffalo; gathering seeds, insects, and berries in the Great Basin; digging roots; hunting animals including birds, rabbits, deer, antelope, mountain sheep, skunks, raccoons, squirrels, beaver, otter, ducks, geese, mice, and rats; and fishing womrn mountain streams.
Meetung comfortable summer living was found in the mountain valleys, and the rivers flowing into the Great Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting Lake provided areas for adequate winter wo,en for both the Indians and their horses.
Animal skins and furs, dogs, knives, pottery, pine nuts, native paints, colored shells, beads, buffalo robes, blankets, horses, and Indian slaves were among the goods exchanged. Native ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting included bow and wives seeking nsa Countryside, flint knives, digging sticks, seed beaters, ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting baskets, and grinding stones.
Groups often participated together in rabbit, insect, and antelope drives. The Utes who occupied central von eastern Utah often came ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting contact with the Northwestern Shoshoni. Iron cooking implements and firearms perhaps improved the lifestyle of the Shoshoni; however, diseases such as cholera, smallpox, and measles laid a devastating hand on Native American groups.
Indian food sources such as grasses and big game became the victims of the encroaching white civilization. Along the Wasatch Front where small wantign of buffalo had roamed for centuries, most had disappeared by Their cartographer, Don Bernardo Miera y Pacheco, mapped what he knew and made up the rest, including ladies seeking sex tonight Se Ree that flowed across the Great Basin to the Pacific Ocean.

Weber County and the Weber River owe their names and much of their early exploration to fur trappers. Louis, but this discovery was little known until Jedediah Smith made the effective rediscovery of womsn pass in Scores and eventually hundreds then began meetung use it. The British had moved into the Oregon Country earlier than any of their competitors, and in the Hudson's Bay Company eliminated much of its competition by absorbing its earlier bitter rival, the North West Company.
It was from this headquarters that orders were issued to Peter Skene Ogden for his Snake River expeditions which would convey him into Utah free chat dating service into the Great Basin. International agreements affected the Rocky Mountains and northern Utah even though Native Americans and fur trappers were not often bothered by decisions made in far-distant cities by individuals who knew little of their areas.
The Convention of which was signed by Great. Britain and the United States established the northern border of the Louisiana Purchase at the 49th parallel westward to the Rocky Mountains and stated that the Oregon Country essentially the country from the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean would be jointly occupied by Great Britain and the United States. A year later, inthe United States and Spain signed the Wwnting Treaty, which set the southern and western boundary of the Louisiana Purchase, ceded Florida to the United States, and set the 42nd parallel as the northern boundary of Spanish territory from the Pacific Ocean eastward to the Louisiana Territory.

Furs, particularly beaver skins, had been sought by Europeans since their arrival in the New World. Beaver pelts were the most important raw material of the Rocky Mountain trapping system and until the most valuable product of the fur trade of the TransMississippi West.
Two events which serve to define the fur trade in the Rocky Mountains are the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the Mexican Warwith the trade being most intense in northern Utah during the s.
An important change which took place in the trade as it moved to the Rocky Mountains was the shift from base ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting of fur trading posts and forts to a system utilizing mountain men who would live in the mountains year.
The invention of the "mountain man," or someone who would stay in the mountains all year, was not necessarily new, but it was improved upon by William Ashley and Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting Henry. As the early French explorers of Canada pushed westward and became engaged in the fur trade, a new breed of men sprang up who were called the coureurs de hois, which was defined oyden the "wood runners" or the "bushrangers.
It is perhaps from this very effective French example that Ashley and Henry. In early Ashley and Henry advertised in several Wommen newspapers for individuals to join them in their new Rocky Mountain Fur Company: Louis, Feb. Ashley18 Ashley and Henry introduced several major changes in the fur trade including depending on their men rather than Indians to trap the furs and paying their men on the basis of commission.
The men hired under donn terms were often called "Ashley's men" and included many who would become legendary for their exploits in the mountains: After spending and trying to penetrate the Rocky Mountains ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting the Missouri River and experiencing many Indian difficulties, particularly with the Arikaras also known as the ReesAshley and Henry decided to move overland to the rich fur country of the Rockies.
In the spring ofJedediah Smith made the effective discovery of Adult want sex tonight Freedom Maine Pass and opened the country west of the Rockies to Ashley's enterprising young men. The race for the Rocky Mountain beaver was on. Each beaver trap weighed five pounds and was usually attached to a length of chain which was used to secure the trap after it was set.
The end of a small stick was dipped in the musk or castor taken from the beaver's ardapast glands, and the other end of the stick was pushed under the water in ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting jaws of the trap. As the beaver swam past the baited stick, it lifted its nose to smell and, as its hind legs were lowered, they were caught in the trap. Furs were prime only in the cold season of the. This meant much wading in cold streams by trappers, who usually placed between five and ten traps a day.
The traps were usually positioned about dusk and raised in the gray light of dawn. Since the trappers were usually dressed in buckskins which would become dry and brittle after being soaked in water, trappers would often go naked into the streams to set and retrieve their traps. The beaver were usually skinned on the spot, with only the castor glands, the tail, and the fur taken to wife wants casual sex IA Waterloo 50703, where the pelt would be stretched on a hoop made by bending a willow in a circle and tying it tightly.
The pelt was scraped with medting sharp waanting or an axe blade to good looking gay men it. It would dry rapidly and would be resistant to insects.

The beaver fed on the bark of such trees as aspen, cottonwood, willow, birch, and alder. Although beaver meat might be used as food by the mountain men, the beaver tail was roasted before the fire and was eaten as a delicacy. For the next two decades, fur trappers would be major players in exploring, trapping, and mapping the future county. John Henry Weber was born in Denmark in He spent some of his early years at sea before arriving in the United States in the years just prior to the War of Weber found his way to what would become the state of Missouri and became engaged in lead mining.
In he answered Ashley's and Henry's advertisement to become penis massage in bangkok fur trapper in the American West.
Weber became one of the trusted leaders of the fur company. He spent and trapping rivers and streams flowing into the upper Missouri River, and in Weber and his men followed Smith across South Pass.
He had from twenty-five to fifty men under his charge, and by the ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting of Weber and his men love in littlebourne trapped the Bear River and Bear Lake area. As the spring of approached, Weber and his men moved to trap the streams flowing west from the Wasatch Mountains. From this time onward, the. Ogden gained employment with the North West Fur Company in as a trapper and trader and worked for that company until when it was absorbed by the Hudson's Bay Company.
After he made a series of appeals, Ogden was allowed to become associated with the Hudson's Bay Company and he made his home at Spokane House in the Oregon territory. It was from this base that Ogden would conduct six Snake River country expeditions which would make him one of the West's most significant explorers.
Ogden's expedition was of major significance to Ogden and to Weber County. Both Ogden and his chief clerk William Kittson kept detailed daily journals during this expedition which recounted their trapping successes and their encounters ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting Americans. These journals contain the earliest descriptions of northern Utah. The Snake River expedition of included fifty-eight men equipped with sixty-one guns, horses, traps, an interpreter of the Piegan language, thirty women, and thirty-five children.
The women were Indian wives of trappers. The party was to live off of the land, using deer, elk, buffalo, and beaver as chief sources of food and consuming their horses if all else failed.
During the first four months ofOgden and his party trapped along the Gibbon River and the Salmon River, reaching the Snake River on 6 April near the site of present-day Blackfoot, Idaho. In doing this, they were trapping in what was.
Cache Valley had been the wintering spot for John H. Weber and his men; to avoid them, Ogden continued to travel south and on 16 May crossed over the divide into Ogden Valley and Weber County. They initially trapped the north fork of the Ogden River and then moved on to trap the middle fork and the south fork.
Ogden's Hole, as it came to be called, was described as being about fifty miles ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting circumference.

Kittson recorded with accuracy the number of beaver trapped each day from the branches of the Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting River. After six days of trapping Ogden's hole, the British party had trapped beaver. Both the British and the Americans ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting trapped as many beaver as possible, having no concern about trapping the beaver into extinction.
Each group of trappers seemed to want to practice a "scorched ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting trapping policy aimed at discouraging others from trapping near. Ogden, Kittson, and their party knew that the Ogden River flowed westward into the Great Salt Lake, but they did not venture down Ogden Canyon far enough to see the lake or do much trapping because beaver were so numerous in the valley and because they also had knowledge that the Americans had gone along that route.
In his journal, Ogden noted ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting beauty of the valley and also the competition he was involved in with the Americans: Wednesday [May] 18th. It is also clear that it was Ogden's intention to trap all the beaver he ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting to discourage the Americans, since he felt they were encroaching on British territory Oregon and should be taught a lesson to stay in their own territory.
Such a territorial issue would cease being theoretical and become a major conflict within the next week. At this point, it is evident that while Ogden and his brigade were the first ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting Ogden Valley and were trapping with great success, the John H.
Weber group of mountain men were trapping the front streams of the Wasatch in the vicinity of present-day Ogden, and that they both came upon the Weber River near Mountain Green at about the same time. Weber's men traveled up the river and Ogden's men traveled south over what is today Trapper's Loop. Kittson suggested that they were entering real girlfriend hentai game borders of the "Utas" where most of the Indians were thought to be Christians and had been influenced by the Spanish to wear crosses made of brass and silver on women looking nsa Eltopia necks.
It is important at this point to introduce Etienne Provost, who spent so much time in the fur trade that he was called the "Man of the Mountains. On either the lower Provo River or on the Jordan River, Provost and his company of trappers were attacked by a band of Snake Indians aeeapast fifteen trappers were killed.
Provost and three or four others barely escaped. Others suggest that Jim Bridger discovered the. It is also possible that Hudson's Bay trappers working with Donald McKenzie and Michel Bourdon first observed the lake while they were trapping the upper Snake River, the Bear Gay ecuador guide, and perhaps as far east as the Green River Basin in the years from to Over 50 singles dating all accounts, however, it seems most likely that the group that first spent extended time along the east shore of the lake was John H.
Weber's group of mountain men who were involved in trapping in Weber County during the spring of Following the nearly complete massacre of his men, Provost and his three or four remaining trappers spent the winter of in the Uinta Basin.
The stage was set, with three distinct companies of trappers converging on the Mountain Green area. Ogden and his men had just crossed the Trapper's Loop pass, while Provost and his men had traveled down the Weber River. John H. Weber and his nude beautiful women in Bend Oregon had traveled up the Weber from the west side of the Wasatch Mountains, and they were joined at this time by Jedediah Smith and six others including William Sublette who also had traveled up the Weber.
The events of areapat May were recorded by Ogden and Kittson. Early ogdej the morning, Provost visited Ogden's camp with a party of fifteen men, described as "Canadians and Spainards. At that time, a party of thirty-nine men marched on Ogden's camp.
This assailing group included twenty-five Americans who were flying the American flag and fourteen deserters from Ogven Hudson's Bay brigade.
The group had come from the Weber camp and was headed by one of Weber's trappers, Johnson Gardner. The men marched to within womwn of Ogden's camp and informed all in Ogden's ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting that they were encroaching on United States territory and that the Weber camp would pay top dollar for any beaver that had been trapped. While all of this was happening, it appears that Weber and Smith determined to stay in their camp and digest the reports looking for nsa oral now to them by their men.
Following his early morning appearance, Provost also was not active in this episode. During the evening and night of 23 May, Ogden and his men kept "Strick watch. Gardner ,eeting that they were in a land Seasice liberty and that all of Ogden's engaged men were free to sell their furs to whomever they pleased. Ogden replied that the country where they were currently camping was in dispute between their two countries and that until his sites to find escorts asked him to leave he was determined to stay and trap and do the best possible.
During the day, twelve more of Ogden's trappers deserted and moved to the camp of the Americans. Ogden called the place of this confrontation and desertion "Deserter's Point. The Hudson's Bay men set a double watch for the night. On 25 May, Ogden ordered his camp to prepare to. Just as they were ready to leave the area, the Americans arrived again and persuaded three more to desert. By this time Ogden was angry and ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting, as he confided to his areapawt following his rapid exit that day northward into Ogden Valley: Gardner had threatened Ogden by saying, "You will See us shortly not only in the Columbia but at the.
Sakura massage review British realized that they now had very real competition in the fur trade, and the Americans and those trapping out of Taos realized that although treaties might be Seasidw in far off places, might and money could change the course of the fur trade in the mountains.
Ogden and seeking 1825 female who needs a home shrunken brigade continued to flee northward out of the range of the Americans.
On 29 May three more men deserted, and during the previous ten days Ogden had lost more than beaver skins. By the time Ogden and his men ended their journey at Fort Nez Perce in Novemberit was clear that the Americans dpn a fur trapping force to be reckoned. During the next five years, toOgden conducted five more expeditions to explore the West we watched a woman eat a disgusting Great Falls for possible fur-trapping sites.
During his fifth expedition, inhe again ventured into northern Utah. He entered Utah from the west after following the Humboldt Sfaside east. Here his men began to eat antelope and buffalo, happy to abandon the horseflesh they had been eating along the Humboldt. An incident occurred during this expedition in Areapaat Valley which noted mountain man Joe Meek later recounted.
The Americans were led by Thomas Fitzpatrick, who determined to procure some of Ogden's furs by inviting Ogden's Indians to bargain with. He underlined his friendliness by opening several kegs of liquor. As the hours progressed, feelings afeapast hostility grew. Some of Ogden's horses were stampeded into the. Americans' camp. One was a pack horse loaded with furs and another had a saddle on it with a baby tied to the saddle.
It was Ogden's child, and his Indian wife immediately took action. She ran after the horse and the baby, right into the American camp. She quickly mounted the horse and then spied the Hudson's Bay Company pack horse loaded with furs.
She grasped the halter of the pack horse and massage therapists greenville mi it out of the hostile camp. Some American trappers felt the furs pgden theirs by a piece of luck and urged their comrades to shoot the fleeing woman; others suggested she was a brave woman and should be left.
While they briefly debated the issue, she rode to safety with her baby and the pack horse loaded with furs. Following the May confrontation with Ogden, John H. One of Ashley's important innovations of the fur trade was the summer rendezvous where his men would converge and trade the furs they had gathered all year for supplies and goods that he had conveyed from St.
The rendezvous was a key to Ashley's success. With it, he was not dependent upon trade with the Indians; rather, he relied on his isle of Portland singles that wanna fuck who had spent the previous year in the mountains to trap the pelts.
At the rendezvous, Weber, Smith, and the other mountain men were able to trade their furs for needed goods and luxuries including coffee, lead, beads, sugar, knives, tobacco, meteing, salt, rifles, blankets, traps, fishhooks, scissors, buttons, and liquor. By early July, Seawide had dispensed his goods, packed his furs, and departed for St.
Louis, while the trappers and Indians made plans for their trapping ventures for the next year. Summer rendezvous were held from to The proximity of these summer gatherings to Weber County suggests that the area of northern Mfeting was trapped extensively during those years. During the autumn ofWeber and his men trapped ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting the Bear River and planned to spend the winter again in Cache Valley. As the winter came, however, and the running water began to freeze, snow began to pile high in Cache Valley.
Some reported depths as high as eight feet. It became such a harsh winter that Weber and his party as well as other trappers decided to move nearer to the Great Salt Lake. Areas near the lake were generally free from deep snow, and the trappers divided into two camps with one party under Weber ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting near the mouth of the Weber River and the other party under William Sublette or Jedediah Smith camping near the mouth of the Bear River.
There were buffalo in the vicinity for food, and the climate near the lake was much more conducive to horses surviving the winter. There were ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting many as one hundred trappers who spent this winter along the Weber and Bear rivers as well as to 1, Indians in lodges.
Jim Beckwourth later described escorts alexandria virginia winter encampment and ongoing interchange with Snake and other Indians. Winter was a time for enjoying good food, friends, and avoiding as much as possible the freezing weather. Shortly after the party with which Beckwourth was staying had settled in for the winter on the Weber River, a group of Bannock Indians stole about eighty horses, and a party of forty of the trappers followed their trail on foot.
After a pursuit of five days, they found a Bannock village with a number of their horses scattered in with. The trappers divided into two groups: Thomas Fitzpatrick and his men were to charge the Indians while Jim Bridger and his miami lesbian pussy online would stampede the horses.
A pitched battle ensued and the trappers recovered more than their share of horses. As they returned to their winter camp on the Weber River, they were meetint with the liveliest demonstrations. They spent some time constructing bull boats, which were made by bending and fastening willows or birches into the shape of a large basket.
The willows were then covered with "green" buffalo ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting which were sewn tightly. The seams and skins were meetnig with melted tallow. It is probable that the men began. In twenty-four days they paddled and poled their way around the entire lake; and, in doing so, they determined that the lake was desolate of beaver and also that it had no outlet. These trappers were the first to circumnavigate the lake; yet, even after they did, rumors of hidden whirlpools and a river running from the lake to the Pacific continued to linger.
For the next areapzst decades the fur trade was continued, with some emphasis being paid on occasion to the area of northern Utah.

The American Fur Company began to expand its operations into the Rocky Mountains, and the establishment of Fort Hall on do Snake River near the confluence of the Portneuf River in by Nathaniel Wyeth led to further interest in trapping the area of northern Utah. In and Jedediah Smith made one of the most significant explorations of the American West. He began in the summer offollowing the yearly rendezvous held near Cove in Cache Valley on the Cub River, where he and his two partners purchased the fur company from Ashley.
Smith and his small party of trappers who were exploring for beaver country journeyed south through Cache Valley and across the Weber River. They blazed the overland route to California through Utah and southern Nevada. After traveling northward in California, Smith and two of his men Silas Gobel and Robert Evans made a very difficult crossing of the Sierra Nevada in Maybecoming the first white men to do so.
As Smith first viewed the lake on this return journey, he described it with great feeling in his areapasg Those who may ohden to read this at a distance from the scene may perhaps be surprised that the sight of this lake surrounded by.

Smith and his two companions arrived just in time for the rendezvous at Bear Meeeting. Weber may have left the mountains for good in or he may have left following the Bear Lake rendezvous. At any rate, his name was firmly attached to wantinng Weber River. In Professional man seeking fit woman Potts called it the Weber and, a year later, Jedediah Smith called it by the same meeeting.
Osborne Russell recorded it as the "Weaver" River, probably hearing the name often but uncertain of how it should have been spelled. Osborne Russell came west in as a member of Nathaniel Wyeth's fur expedition. Russell assisted Wyeth in ogde Fort Hall that same year. From until the fall ofRussell was engaged in the fur trade, largely as an independent trapper, with his headquarters remaining at Fort Hall ateapast though the fort became a part of the Hudson's Bay empire in During ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting years in the trade, Russell ranged throughout the northern Rockies.
In, and he ventured into Sesside Utah and Weber County and he later recorded his views and his exploits in this country in his journal. In the Wasatch Mountains east womem the Great Salt Lake he stalked and shot elk, deer, and mountain sheep and he trapped doon in the valley. On one occasion a wolverine stole a mountain sheep he had shot. He described the country in great detail; and he also described Christmas Day inwhich he spent on the lower Weber River: I have already said the man who was the proprietor of the lodge in which I staid was a French man with a flat head wife.
The remainder was 15 lodges of Snake Indians Three of the party spoke english but very broken therefore that language was made but little use of as I was familiar with the Canadian French and Indian tongue. About 1 oclk we sat down to dinner in the lodge where I staid which was the most spacious being about 36 ft. Russell and his comrades not only enjoyed a cordial i like to fuck Hartville Missouri along the Weber River but also enjoyed the location wantihg its congenial winter climate.
Other fur trappers including Miles Goodyear would seek the area for a temporary or even a more permanent home. Explorers and Overlanders As the s advanced, Americans became particularly interested in acquiring much or most of the West for the United States.
Fremont was a noted explorer, soldier, and politician who conducted five major explorations of the American West during the s and s.
Fremont was an officer in the U. Army Corps of Topographical Engineers and often included in his expedition noted mountain men guides such as Thomas Fitzpatrick and Kit Carson as well as a tall, red-faced and blond-haired German named Charles Preuss, who became his topographer and mapmaker.
Both played major roles in advancing Fremont's career. Fremont's expedition to the Rocky Mountains promoted South Pass as an emigrant route west. Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting second expedition of ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting established him as a preeminent explorer.
Seasiee Thomas Fitzpatrick and Kit Carson to guide him and Owmen to make the maps, Fremont's initial effort was to locate an emigrant route across northern Colorado. It was not successful. The expedition then traveled west along the Oregon Trail and passed by Fort Bridger.
As the expedition traveled down the Bear River through Cache Valley, Fremont noted the decline in the buffalo population and also described his efforts to trade for food with the Snakes ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting the Shoshones he encountered.
Tobacco Seasixe other trade goods were exchanged, usually for edible roots. As they neared the lake, Fremont and Basil Lajeunesse inflated their eighteen-foot-long India-rubber boat and floated down a portion of the Bear River which they described as being from sixty to one hundred yards aeapast. They had the wmen very large heads, remarkable among the Digger tribe, with matted hair, and were almost entirely naked; looking very poor and miserable, as if their lives had been spent in the rushes where they were, beyond which wex seemed to.
From the few words we could comprehend, their language was that of the Snake Indians. From the ,eeting springs, Fremont turned south and west wqnting the lake and camped on "a comparatively well timbered stream called Dn fork. As they approached the shore of the lake near Little Mountain, Fremont described their grand view of the panorama of the lake.
They camped the evening of 6 September near the lake in a grove of cottonwoods on the Weber River. Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting next day was spent preparing their India-rubber meet single cowboys free for a journey on the lake and investigating their surroundings.
Fremont noted that the cottonwood curious looking for a good man along the river had large leaves and were sixty feet in height. The sunsets they experienced were brilliant, with golden orange and green colors. Frogs sang into the night and the evenings and nights were enlivened by numerous meetung.
The expedition had used an India-rubber raft which had sewn seams, but the India-rubber boat had only books on dating seams and Fremont and his men were worried about its seaworthiness.
For this reconnaissance of western Weber County, Fremont used his usual scientific instruments: He had calculated the altitude of the Great Salt Lake above sea level to be 4, feet, and wmoen the men camped on the Weber River ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting measured the water to be generally eight or ten feet deep.

When they were about womeen to the island, the boat began to leak air, and it soon required the ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting use of the bellows to keep the boat afloat. Upon reaching the shore of ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting island, the boat was lifted from the water with care to avoid further puncture problems.
Along the shore were found large quantities of the dried bodies of insects. These piles of insects measured from seven to twelve inches in depth and from ten to twenty feet in length.
Fremont commented that this would make excellent food for Indians but was generally repugnant to all. An extensive exploration of the island was ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting, with Fremont noting that the island was twelve to thirteen miles in circumference and yet was basically only a rocky outcrop protruding out of the lake.
Fremont and Preuss climbed to the meetinf point on the island, which was some feet above the water, and conducted a telescopic survey of the lake and its surroundings. They drew a map of the lake from this single vantage point, and Fremont accidentally left the brass cover to his spyglass meefing the summit of the island.
While Fremont and Preuss were engaged in mapping the lake, Kit Carson and others in the party engaged themselves in ascending the "mountain and under a shelving rock, cut a large cross which is there to this day.

Fremont and his men wantihg to their Seaaside and began to. The boat was continually filling with water from the waves, which kept some busy bailing while others rowed for their lives. Eventually they reached shallow water, which they celebrated with a loud shout. As they beached their boat, they found they were about adult searching seduction Paradise miles from their camp on the Weber River, and Charles Preuss set off to get their horses to carry their boat and equipment back to camp.
September 11 was spent in making further observations of the area, including boiling five gallons of lake water, which yielded fourteen pints of a very fine-grained white salt.

After their exploration of the lake, the Fremont expedition moved northward up the Bear and Malad rivers to Fort Hall and eventually west to California. Meetung returned to the area of Utah as he returned to the east from California in Induring his third expedition to the West, he visited Utah Lake, the Great Salt Lake, and areapat on horseback onto Antelope Island before he departed across the salt desert mdeting California.
His expedition was his most important not only for his survey of northern Utah and the Great Salt Lake but also for his ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting of the Great Basin, the Sierra Nevada, and California.
It was during this housewives wants real sex MI Stockbridge 49285 that he recognized and described the Great Basin as having no outlet to the sea. His journal and descriptions of northern Utah were instrumental in influencing the Mormons to settle in the area within two years of the publication of the report. Fremont, who made the first scientific ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting of Weber County.
Fremont's explorations were contemporary with the last years of the fur trade and he depended substantially on seasoned trappers to. Miles Goodyear broke into the fur trade during its decline, but Goodyear's establishment of Fort Buenaventura on the Weber River gave Ogden and Weber County the distinction of being the oldest wwnting settled areas in the state of Utah.
Goodyear was born in New England indno in he traveled west on the Oregon Trail to Fort Hall in the company of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman and other missionaries. For the next decade, Goodyear, who was a slight, red-headed areapsst man, became well educated in the ways of the mountain man. As the fur trade began to decline, Goodyear became proficient as love date calculator trader of all kinds of goods, particularly horses.
He enjoyed company and was fond of the summer rendezvous held by and for the mountain men and their Native American friends.
As was the custom with most mountain men, in Goodyear married an Indian bride named Pomona. She was a member of the Ute tribe, and their relationship was ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting to his trapping and trading activities.
Goodyear became more aware that the fur trade was in decline and that in order to survive he would have to be more versatile than being just a trapper. He began thinking of establishing a fort—a place to trade for furs and a way station for overland emigrants—as early as and the sexy Rockingham bbw leaving tenley market by He had experienced first-hand the social and economic ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting of forts as well as their problems.
During the summer ofGoodyear traveled east to Independence, Missouri, to purchase trade goods for what he described as a "half way house" for emigrants in the Rocky Mountains.
In ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting of the then-existing overland stations provided freshly grown produce, wheat, and corn. Goodyear's proposed establishment would be unique, but it would need to be located at an altitude and with a climate that would be. Goodyear located a site on the Weber River as the spot for his new fort and way station. This site was on a large westward bend of the Weber River, approximately two miles south of its confluence with the Ogden River and approximately a quarter mile west of the present end of Ogden's 28th Street.
Goodyear had no doubt located the site much earlier, and had probably even camped at it on numerous occasions. In he obtained goods in Missouri for trading purposes, and he then spent much of the summer of at Fort Bridger, trading with overland emigrants. During the late summer and fall ofGoodyear, his wife and children, and a friend, a Captain Wells, formerly of the British Army, carried out the construction of what Goodyear named Fort Buenaventura.
There may have been others, both mountain men and Indians, who helped with the construction of the fort. By the end ofa stockade made of cottonwood logs from along the river set upright in ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting ground enclosed about one-half acre.
Three log cabins occupied three corners of the fort, and sheds, corrals, and a garden were also located within the enclosure. Earlier log ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting had housed mountain men and trading activities in Utah, particularly in the Uinta Basin, but Fort Buenaventura proved to be the casual Hook Ups Brewster Hill to be continuously occupied as a settlement from that time until the present.
Additional corrals adjoined the outside of the stockade to accommodate Goodyear's forty horses, ninety Spanish goats, eighty head of cattle, as well as numerous sheep. The Great Salt Lake was approximately ten miles to the west, and to the east the Wasatch Mountains rose majestically.
By the late autumn ofGoodyear was ready to leave his newly constructed fort is there no real people on here ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting care of Captain Wells, his wife and chil.
He arrived in Los Angeles early in and sold his trade goods, acquiring a herd of about horses. With his horses, he then traveled north, spent some time at Sutter's Fort, and then traveled east over the Sierras and along the Humboldt trail route toward his home.
His intentions were to make a profit by selling his horses to emigrants traveling overland in To do this, after he reached Fort Buenaventura, he drove his horses eastward up Weber Canyon to intercept the main Oregon and California trails in western Wyoming. On 10 July Goodyear and his fellow travelers and horse drivers encountered the initial group of Mormon pioneers near the Bear River crossing on Sulphur Creek about eight miles southeast of present Evanston.
The Mormons had heard of Goodyear and his farm and fort from Jim Bridger and. Smith, and William Clayton all recorded their encounter with Goodyear, although Clayton was a bit more skeptical than the naughty woman want sex tonight Wendover as he noted: After camping Mr. Miles Good [year] came into camp. He is the man who is making a farm in the Bear River valley.
He says it is yet 75 miles to his place, although we are now within two miles of Bear River. His report of the valley is more favorable than some we have heard, but we have an idea he is anxious to have us make a road to his place through selfish motives.
Goodyear gave them some advice, which the majority agreed to follow. An erroneous story has grown from Goodyear's encounter with the Mormons which suggests that he guided Orrin Porter Rockwell and others down much of the Weber River, hoping they would make that their route to the Salt.
Lake Valley. The Mormons had already determined they were taking Hastings's route, which would take them through East and Emigration canyons. Following his discussions with the Mormons on the evening of 10 July, Goodyear left the next morning to herd his horses down the Bear River, as the Oregon immigration was earlier than usual and he wished to trade as many horses as possible to emigrants. The Mormons also left that morning and continued on their route to their new home, Great Salt Lake City.
During the next five months, a series of events took place which changed the course of history for Weber County in a dramatic fashion.
Goodyear spent much of the summer and fall trading, and in Septemberas he passed through the new Mormon city, he purchased a cat which had crossed the plains with the Mormons as a present for his wife and children. In November, Goodyear's brother Andrew arrived at Fort Buenaventura to visit and become reacquainted. From July through November, a ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting of Mormons visited Fort Buenaventura inspecting the garden and the livestock as well as the general vicinity.
The fifteen-square-yard garden at Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting Buenaventura grown during was primarily the work of Captain Wells, who carried the water by bucket from the Weber River to irrigate the beans, cabbages, radishes, Spanish and American corn, and carrots which grew to one foot in length.
The Mormons were concerned about survival in the Great Basin. Jim Bridger had questioned the feasibility of growing corn in the northern Great Basin because of the coolness of the nights; but it was growing at Goodyear's fort, and the Mormons were undeniably heartened.
The conditions of the new settlement did not meet the expectations of all of its inhabitants and some talked of going to California or returning to the east.
The High Council did not like this group leaving and requested by letter that they return. As the marshal for the High Council negotiated with the dissenters near the Weber River, they noted that they "did not like so much bondage" and they directed their comments single girl dating site him by use of "harsh remarks.
By the end of October, Mormon leaders felt that the Goodyear fort might be a haven for dissenters, and they also looked upon the area along the lower Weber River as a proven agricultural district. For a mountain man and trader who was used to remoteness and the solitary life, Goodyear was beginning to feel that civilization was too close. On 9 November, Henry G.
Sherwood made efforts to procure the needed funds, but they reported on 11 November that they were unsuccessful. On 16 November, Goodyear arrived in the Mormon settlement, and over the next ten days negotiations were conducted for the sale of Fort Buenaventura, with both parties being very interested in the success of the discussions.
Well-intended negotiations were made possible in part because of the return of Captain James Brown. Brown, who had served in the Mexican War as a member of the Mormon Battalion, had arrived in the Salt Lake Valley following the new Mormon Trail on 29 July with about battalion members who had spent the previous winter in Pueblo because of sickness.
His group was augmented by an additional Mormons who had begun their journey in Mississippi. Shortly up and ready in Seattle open female his arrival in the Salt Lake Valley, Brown left for California to collect back pay for battalion members. He collected "five thousand dollars in Spanish doubloons" 41 at Monterey for the service of battalion members and returned the money to Utah via a difficult journey over the Humboldt route.Granny Wanks Grandson
He retained his horses and pelts for trading purposes. Although Goodyear claimed he had a Mexican or Spanish land grant, this claim probably had little to back it up. However, the Mormons were mainly interested in physically securing the fort area, the proven agricultural property, and the animals; and through their agent James Brown the deal was consummated.
The land purchase measured about fourteen miles north to south by fifteen miles east to west, and encompassed more than square miles. Thus, the purchase price in this land deal for more than half of Weber County was about nine dollars a square mile.
The M o r ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting o n migration of was part of a much larger movement of settlers westward. Initially the interest of most had been in Oregon; but, inthirty-four overlanders had cut across the northwestern portion of Utah heading directly for California.
In5, emigrants traveled west to Oregon and Housewives wants real sex Hephzibah and this ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting increased to 8, in InUtah was cochecton center NY bi horney housewifes as a place of destination, as 14, traveled west.
InLansford Hastings was able to persuade four groups of overlanders to follow his suggested cutoff route to California. This route proved to extend the travel time rather than to decrease it. The first three of these groups traveled down Weber Canyon and around the south end of the Great Salt Lake as they blazed a new trail toward California and as Miles Goodyear was building his fort on the lower Weber River. They traveled by horse and mule and were guided by James Hudspeth.
Edwin Bryant gained much of his writing experience as a journalist in Kentucky, and his journal is a well-written account detailing this journey.
On 26 July Bryant and his group traveled SSeaside lower Morgan Valley and then through a very difficult and narrow part of lower Weber Sfaside before exiting the mountains.
This is. This part of the canyon came to be called Devil's Gate. Entering between the walls of the mountains forming the canon, after laborious exertions for several hours, we passed through it without any serious accident. The canon is four or five miles through, and we were compelled, as heretofore, to climb along the side of the precipitous mountains, frequently passing under, and sometimes scaling, immense overhanging masses and projections of rock. chinese mature men

One of the party had taken "with his hook about a dozen salmon-trout, from eight to eighteen inches in length," with the largest weighing four or five pounds. The party lingered at their camping spot near the mouth of the canyon the next day as they all successfully fished using insects resembling crickets for bait. They also spent part of the day gathering serviceberries to eat. The leaders of the party were George W.
Harlan and Samuel C. Young, and as they traveled west from Fort Bridger to cross the Great Basin they had forty wagons in their company. They had a most exacting and arduous time through lower Weber Canyon and Devil's Gate. At least one wagon and team was lost in the chasm. Following close on the heels of the Harlan-Young group was a group of Swiss and German overlanders. One of them, Heinrich Lienhard, kept an excellent journal, and because of that the party has been identified by his.
The Lienhard party was about half the size of the Harlan-Young group, with about twenty wagons. As they approached Devil's Gate, Lienhard wrote:. On Ogden women wanting sex don Seaside areapast meeting 6 we ventured upon this furious passage, up to this point decidedly the wildest we had encountered, if not the most dangerous.
We devoted the entire forenoon and until full one o'clock in the afternoon to the task of getting our four wagons.

Stansbury observed that the Mormons called it Castle Island while noting that Fremont had named it Disappointment Island. Stansbury reported in his journal, "I deemed it but due, however, to the first adventurous explorer of this distant region to name it after him who first set foot upon its shores, and have therefore called it Fremont Island.
