    ... wagons and carted them down these very treacherous passes in pieces. They re assembled the wagons below and the trip often resulted with a loss of wagons, stock and lives. Tough people indeed! Probably have not been too many people sitting here for a while who like me have actually travelled overland by horse and wagon and understand the enormity of this process.
