This is an article about the 150th anniversary of the infamous Donner Party. Of course most everyone is familiar with this "grisly" tale. There was a special about it on American Experiences a few weeks ago. I had seen it before, but watched it again. It's a "haunting" tale. I have also been through the Donner pass. I lived in California years ago and we used to take that route sometimes. My mom always had to mention this story to scare me!
