Later in 1834 the first trails were blazed through the Snake River Valley; Donald McKensie in 1818 had already been in the area. Also Kit Carson, William Sublette and Jedediah Smith had wonder through the valley. Nathaniel Wyeth and Captain Bonneville explored the valley and Fort Hall and Fort Boise were established and became stations along the “New” Oregon Trail. At Three Island Ford, Gus Glenn in 1863 built the ferry, so he could carry freight across the river. It was said it took 20 yoke of oxen to pull the long train form Kelton to Utah along the Snake River. To read more:glennsferryidaho.org/Glenns%20Ferry%20History.htm
