Hayden Expedition – Two Ocean Pass
On this day 150 Years ago! (August 13, 1871)
Doane leads Ferdinand Hayden and a small group on a multi-day excursion to locate the fabled “Two Ocean Pass”, originally reported by Jim Bridger. The waters from a creek on this plateau split: part of the flow eventually enters the Gulf of Mexico and part of the water ends up in the Pacific Ocean. They were unsuccessful. This failed attempt added to the bitter feelings between the two men.
