    History Talk - Braving the California Trail Through Nevada


    History Talk – Braving the California Trail through Nevada
    For many emigrants who braved the California Trail in the mid-1800s, the segment through Nevada was the most hated and feared portion of the entire journey. A park interpreter will discuss what made travel through the Great Basin of Nevada so arduous for wagon trains, and will explore topics such as the forty-mile desert, the Humboldt River and the legend of the Buenaventura River.
    WHEN: Saturday, June 22, 1 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
    WHO: This event is free to the public.
    Location:
    Mormon Station State Historic Park is located 20 minutes south of Carson City via Hwy 395, about one hour south of Reno, and approximately 20 minutes from South Lake Tahoe via Hwy 207.
