    By the way, for those of you who don't know, Jedediah Smith was one of the early explorers through the area. There is a small Butte named after him just east of Fort Piute.

    Jedediah Smith was one of the first mountain men to explore Indian trails in the hinterlands of Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California and Oregon. Back when Mexico bordered the southern boundaries of Oregon and Idaho and before there was such a thing as the Oregon Territory. He was one of the first Americans to trek from the San Francisco Bay area to Hudson Bay Company territory on the Columbia River. A true backroader...er, back-pather.

    He was found in a gully with a couple of arrows in him. He was also known as sort of a preacher because he always carried a Bible with him and read it alot. He was one of the few who could read and write and was well educated. If I remember right he was found dead before he was 30 years old. No one really knew much about him, he was very quite, but a great mountain man/scout.
