Historic emigrant trails, Nevada Guard intersect at Elko County Readiness Center

About one half-mile north of the main buildings at the Nevada Army Guard's Elko County Readiness Center, California Trail Interpretive Center historian Jan Petersen points out potential wagon swales on the Greenhorn Cutoff trail in Carlin, Nev. Thousands of emigrants traveled across what is now Nevada Guard property in the 1840s and 1850s while traversing the California Trail, a primary emigrant trail that stretched 2,000 miles from the Missouri River to northern California.
