My day started off with a drive to Donner Lake. Here, I stopped at the Donner Memorial State Park, where I saw the Pioneer Monument. This monument represents the snow level during that winter of 1846. The Donner families were trapped here without shelter or supplies, and many members of the group resorted to cannibalism to survive… icky!!!
The day finished off with an epic off-road Jeep adventure in my friend Barbie’s ride. She was too scared to attempt the rugged terrain, so I dove in flying solo.
