While going through a folder of pictures taken on a trip to Scottsbluff National Monument a few years ago, I noticed that I had never stitched a set of panorama photos. So, I put them together and this picture is the result.

The picture was taken standing approximately on the path of the Oregon Trail. Perhaps many of the nearly 1/2 million pioneers traveling through here in the mid 1800's may have also seen such a sunrise.

The North Platte River runs just beyond the bluffs on the horizon. The emigrants on the Oregon Trail had been following the Platte River on it's southern bank from it's confluence with the Missouri River about 400 miles to the east and would continue following it to nearly it's headwaters at the Continental Divide in central Wyoming. These bluffs were a barrier to their progress west. The bluffs extend about 20 miles to the south with one break which is on the left margin of the picture. That break in the cliffs was named Mitchell Pass. 150 years later the ruts from the passage of many thousands of wagons are still clearly visible at Mitchell Pass.
