Yep! This Atlantic City was named because it is the last established community on the Oregon/California/Mormon Trail before it reaches the Great Divide. Hence the name Atlantic! Just ten miles from there is South Pass City and Pacific Creek! I have seen the Wyoming valley of Pennsylvania but never thought it was where the State got its' name. Very interesting. Found some more shell cassings and a few sandstone buttons the otherday. All I can say is, Those old dudes were tough!
