Jeff,

The markers were placed wherever we crossed the emigrant trail. The have quotes taken from emigrant diaries that refer to the specific location where the markers are located. I don't recall the one DD posted but here are a few we came across. The first is from Mud Meadows Reservoir and the other three are from the route to High Rock Reservoir.

Ted, Thanks for posting those. Trip reports from early Wander The West members. Some sound familiar.

Cheers,

Mike

I wonder if I"m still a member of trails west. Had the intention of getting active with them and helping with those markers before I lost my job. Its a fairly small group of people that do that.
