In this edition of Main Street Wyoming, we'll take a look at the discovery of South Pass, and its impact on America's westward expansion. In the early days of the United States the Continental Divide served as a barrier, a wall that blocked its western frontier. Early explorers struggled to find a suitable way to cross this barrier.
