To Yellowstone Park via Yellowstone Trail

It was only fitting that Paul Newman, local trailsman, should travel the Yellowstone Trail himself. He and his wife, Margaret, set out from Hobart on June 26, 1922, driving west on the Trail. They were halfway to Yellowstone Park when they sent a progress report back home:

They completed the westbound journey on the Yellowstone Trail. The return trip followed an alternate route that included parts of the Lincoln Highway. After six weeks of traveling, the Newmans arrived back home in Hobart.
