The Pony Express was a mail service that operated for 18 months in 1860 & 1861. It operated between Saint Joseph, MO. and Sacramento, CA. The Pony Express trail was 1,966 miles long and had approx. 180 stations along its route. It took riders 10 days to travel the route. Each rider would ride 75-100 miles, switching horses every 10-15 miles. This Tour will begin in Saint Joseph, fly over the central plains, over the Rockies, thru the Utah-Nevada desert and finally over the Sierra's & into Sacramento. Thanks to Jim (MEC0235) for creating the Tour for us.
