by Pike took him through the southeastern part of King County,
into Knox County, across the South Fork of the Wichita and the
North Fork of the Wichita into southeastern Foard County and
to the Red River in northeastern Wilbarger County. The dis-
tance from the "Resgate" (Double Mountain Fork) to the Red
River is given as 140 miles. The route in Oklahoma appears to
have been north and northeast to the Washita River through the
Cross Timbers, probably in Garvin County, thence down the
Washita through the Arbuckle Mountains, thence east to the
Blue and down to the Red River, across the Boggy to the Kia-
mishi and there, taking the wrong road, missed Fort Towson and
went northeast to Fort Smith, Arkansas, arriving there on De-
cember 10, 1832.
These general notes on Pike's trail are susceptible to much
refinement, and perhaps some improvement. There are many
land marks mentioned along the route that can undoubtedly be
identified by one familiar with the local topographic details. The
object of this paper is merely to call attention to the fact that
Albert Pike has a place in history as an explorer in western Texas.
