  • October 26, 1861 – The operations ceased after the first transcontinental telegraph was established on October 24, 1861

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
