Goodnight-Loving Trail

"'We left the Pecos at Roswell and went up by old Fort Sumner, crossed over to the Canadian River and by the old Bell ranch, then went on up the Goodnight Trail through the mountains and reached the market in July with 1,600 head of steers out of the 2,200 that we left Presidio County with in April. This was my last trip up the trail and I came back to Atascosa County and am still here."

Essay:I have learned that the Goodnight-Loving Trail not only does it work but it also cluld work for maybe going to Colorado to visit a family member. Trail can really help people who are taking their cattle to the market in Wyoming because there was/is plenty of grass on the was and were some rivers so the cattle could take a break, eat, or drink water on the way.

7. When was the trail used?It was used from 1866 through 1966.
