Lincoln HighwayEdit

This article is tagged with the category Lincoln Highway. Does anybody have a map or book of the Lincoln highway that shows to this detail? The map on the Wikipedia article shows the Lincoln Highway routed through Ogden, meaning it's certainly possible. However, the route description from the website that is the source of this map does dot support the LH passing through Ogden, instead listing cities along the current route of I-80 through Parleys Canyon. A low resolution map on the LH Association [1], while crappy, further supports this, as does this crappy resolution map [2]. I don't know exactly when the Parleys Canyon route supplanted Emigration Canyon or Weber Canyon, however the namesake Parley P. Pratt died in the 1850s. So it certainly would have been in use by the time the Lincoln Highway came into existence. I'm curious which route is the "real" route, or were they both real, but was re-routed?

Update: Reading TFA, one of the newspapers cited [3], states the LH never officially went through Ogden, but there were several efforts, including a mis-information campaign, by Ogden officials to route it through there. The other article cited is a one line passing mention with no clarifiation or other information available.Dave (talk) 06:19, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
