Walker was sponsored by Benjamin Bonneville from the United States. He went on one expedition and was sent to find furs and explore the Great Salt Lake, and to find a trail to the Pacific Ocean. He explored Northern California, and a little bit of Southern California.Walker traveled by foot. He went through Idaho and Nevada. It took him over a month to finish his expedition.
