In 1831, Pike left Massachusetts to travel west, first stopping in St. Louis and later moving on to Independence, Missouri. In Independence, he joined an expedition to Taos, New Mexico, hunting and trading. During the excursion his horse broke and ran, forcing Pike to walk the remaining 500 miles to Taos. After this he joined a trapping expedition to the Llano Estacado in New Mexico and Texas. Trapping was minimal and, after traveling about 1300 miles (650 on foot), he finally arrived at Fort Smith, Arkansas.[3] - Wikipedia

The Temple Lot, located in Independence, Jackson County, Missouri, is the first site to be dedicated for the construction of a temple in the Latter Day Saint movement. The area was dedicated on Wednesday, August 3, 1831 by the movement's founder, Joseph Smith, Jr.,[1] and purchased on December 19, 1831 by his colleague Edward Partridge to be the center of the New Jerusalem or "City of Zion" after he received a revelation stating that it would be the gathering spot of the Saints during the Last Days.[2]

Why was Albert Pike in Missouri at this time ?
 Quoting: YOUCITY 18850702

For awhile Pike was principal of a grammar school in Newburyport, Massachusetts. In March of 1831 he joined a caravan headed for Santa Fe, New Mexico. With transportation the back of a horse or seat of a wagon, with hostile Indians perhaps just over the next ridge, such a grueling and hazardous journey must have been backed by strong motive. What was it? Written history tells us nothing, but by the Grace of God and, in a most round-about way, I've discovered the reason and in doing so put a handle on one of this planet's most puzzling mysteries.

The information Pike obtained while in Santa Fe doubtless influenced his decision to move to Arkansas. It was 1833 when he entered the lower stretches of the Ozarks. Beside the broad Arkansas River, the area and its fast-growing influx of white settlers, its Indian tribes of thousands of years of Ozark habitation, the intriguing Indian mounds, the beckoning caves, must have been an irresistible lure to this seeker of occult knowledge.
