    Verdi's Dog Valley and the Donner Party

    Both TW-Brian and Admiral who liked the Verdi Fire Lookout story, as well as everyone else who rode on my last group ride followed in the footsteps of the Donner Party. Turns out the Donner Party should have wintered over near my place once it started snowing. They likely could have found something to eat rather than each other. Maybe that's why the wife these days wants to feed everyone so well, fear of cannibalism when I have you folks over.
    I did a terrible job trying to explain this on the ride so here is some of my local history and the most famous early emigrants.

    Fred you so funny. Thanks for the linky.
