Take U.S. 12

August 25, 2007

Travel the route 0f Lewis & Clark. This beautiful road traversed the northern Great Plains and Rocky Mountains before ending in the Oregon city of Portland. This vintage brochure was handed out by the more than 400 members of the Highway 12 Association. Printed in the late 1950s, the guide uses the ubiquitous cowboy to lure travelers to western adventures.


The back of the guide has simple drawings highlighting stops along the route. Check out the small towns along the way, each dependent on the highway for tourists and commerce.
