A Western Trip
On August 1, 1901, Carl E. Schmidt, with his daughter Emma, a friend Frank Pingree and his son, Everett, left Detroit on tour of the U.S. West, the first destination inspired by a painting of a Yellowstone geyser. On the way to Yellowstone, they spent a day at the Minnesota State Fair, then traveled to Livingstone [now Livingston, MT] and from there to the Park where they stayed in the newly built lodge. From Yellowstone, the party rode to the Grand Canyon, then continued north to Butte. From that city the group took the Oregon Short line for Salt Lake City, where they were met by friends. A trip to the Salt Lake preceeded a descent into a Modena silver mine. A few days later the party split up. Carl and Emma Schmidt and Frank Pingree to return to Detroit while Everett returned to the mines.
