The Pony Express Trail Was Legendary, And It Ran Right Through Utah

Utah was once the Wild West, full of vast stretches of land, indigenous people, wild horses, and an occasional hardy trapper or fur trader. In the mid-1800s, Westward Expansion was in full swing, and the Pony Express carried the mail from Missouri to California. This legendary trail cut right through Utah, and you can travel along some of the trail to see historic sites today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
