Love the Indian on the horse.  I need to get back down to the river and see if I can find it!

Approximate location of the Kentuc Trail, a pioneer trail in eastern Washington.

And just like the Mullan Road, the Kentuck Trail is still utilized today in the form of streets, state highways, and interstate freeways. 
Its quite amazing to think that routes used by the region's Indians hundreds of years ago have steadily maintained their social and economic importance.  The context in which they are utilized may be completely different, but from old Nez Perce trading routes, to the Kentuck Trail, and on to I-90 and 195, these old trails serve nearly the exact same purposes as they were originally intended.
