I ran across a random reference to Bill Rishel founding the Bonneville Raceway on the Great Salt Lake desert. It mentioned that he had discovered the site while "scouting for a transcontinental bike race" in the 1890's. Not long after this era, Rishel used his knowledge of the territory to build a career putting together auto routes for the burgeoning auto-tourism fad. I was surprised to learn that road-building in the West didn't really start with utilitarian routes, but with locally-promoted tourist tracks leading to the National Parks. Bryce Canyon was actually "discovered", roaded & brought to the country's attention by Rishel's scouting.
