After the dreary winter of 1846-1847 passed, the Mormon Pioneer advance party readied to
continue west during the spring of 1847. And after they successfully planted a colony in what
is now Utah, Young and other leaders returned to Winter Quarters to lead a much bigger
group west in 1848. Thereafter, Winter Quarters was quickly abandoned. The Mormons who
did not go west at that time tended to congregate near what was to become Council Bluffs,
Iowa, until such time as they could continue on west. Some Mormons remained in western
Iowa until at least 1853. They founded a newspaper, the Frontier Guardian (1849-1852) and
made money helping with church migration and, as previously noted, also catering to the
needs of thousands of other Americans traveling to Oregon and California.
