Thousand Springs
Nevada


The California Trail entered the northeast corner of Nevada and followed a broad dry valley southestwards. An area of lush meadows known as 1000 Springs was a godsend for the weary travellers. After another stretch of desert they reached the reliable water and forage of the Humboldt River near Wells.
