Trucks of the 1919 U.S. Army Motor Transport convoy from Washington, DC to San Francisco, California, roll along the dirt road of the Lincoln Highway, crossing the Continental Divide, in Wyoming. Behind them, soldiers walk near a slow moving truck with sign painted on its back reading: "Coast to Coast Machine Shop, Service Park Unit 595." Another truck slowly passes the same point, where there is a downhill grade. A dwelling is at the side of the road, and others are seen in the background. The road is dry hard-packed dirt. Next, trucks of the convoy are seen driving on a road parallel to a railroad on which a steam locomotive is pushing a long train of freight cars in the same direction as the trucks. View of trucks driving past extended snake rail fencing.

A truck in the U.S. Army 1919 motor convoy, across America, is seen with its right rear wheel broken through the road bed of a wooden bridge across a dry creek, in Whyoming. The truck was heavily laden, carrying a Holt tractor in its bed. Soldiers stand about as an operator backs the tractor out of the truck. They then examine the situation. Closeup of the truck wheel broken through wooden floor boards of the bridge. They hook the rear of the truck to the Holt tractor and pull it out of the hole in the bridge. Next, the convoy is seen stopped at the bridge and for a long way in the distance, as soldiers lay coiled planking (sort of pre-fabricated corduroy road) at the dry creek to facilitate passage by trucks around the wooden bridge. A truck begins to drive up the embankment on the planking, with difficulty, as soldiers help push it. Scene shifts to two trucks slowly climbing a narrow dirt road.
The U.S. Army cross-continental motor convoy leaving Fort Bridger, in the Southwest corner of Wyoming and proceeding into Utah. Trucks drive on a narrow dirt road alongside a mountain with trees on other side of the road. The whole convoy stops for a meal break in Utah, where fifty or more vehicles are seen parked near a dry riverbed beside a mountain. Next, trucks are seen moving slowly along a narrow mountainside road, past huge rock outcroppings. View from ahead of trucks negotiating narrow road beside an almost dry river bed in mountains of Utah.
