Why the Name PathFinders?
Saguache County, Colorado is
the home to some meaningful history. Two of the very important
historical figures we're nick-named "Pathfinders". In
keeping with the theme of great explorations and discovery, we've
adopted the name.John Fremont
was an expedition leader who helped to open this part of the American West and the northern route of the Old Spanish Trail
. He was called "The Great Pathfinder"
. Otto Mears
was a visionary and founding father of the town of Saguache. He
became an accomplished road builder, entreprenuer, and political
figure. He was directly responsible for building many cargo roads
in our area. His skill at constructing quality routes through
virgin mountain territory earned him the nick-name "The Pathfinder of the West"
. We still use many of his roads to this day.
