THERE WOULD NORMALLY BE A NICE MAP OF THE AREA HERE BUT THE NEW GOOGLE MAPS JUST SUCKS TOO MUCH TO USE. SORRY ABOUT THAT.
Hey, it turns out I was wrong, though I like my answer better. It was evidently called that because a bunch of wagons were abandoned there by the Army when they tried to move a bunch of supplies through to Oregon City a little too late in the season and their Oxen died.

Editor's note: The female adventurers were cold once we stopped. Not just a little cold, but oh my god, get out the emergency hand warmers and wait frantically until they started working cold. And if your knee hurts, and you decide that laying in the snow is a good idea, so you can elevate it (the PT always says elevate and ice after exercise, but my god, it's 10 degrees out in the snow, so we'll skip the ice), then don't think you can just walk over there and lay down. 'Cause Jon is right, you'll sink right up to your hip in the snow. Which will make your already sore knee very mad at you, and might make you a little grouchy with the rest of the AAT. Just sayin.
