Great pictures on Adventure Dates of Ash Hollow, Windlass Hill, and Courthouse and Jail Rocks — all important landmarks on the Oregon Trail. I’ll be writing soon about the emigrants’ progress along the Trail in June, but for now, take a look at these pictures.

  1. Nothing to do with Courthouse Rocks, but are you following, by chance, the campaign of Elizabeth Warren who hopes to gain the senate seat held by Scott Brown of Massachusetts (Ted Kennedy’s old seat)? Elizabeth is native of Oklahoma, many years ago designated herself as being of Cherokee ancestry. Brown keeps claiming she sought special advantages, and Elizabeth is in a tight spot because she relied on family legend, no actual proof.

    That’s my story, although I never claimed anything. The family genealogist has never found that legendary Cherokee ancestor, although we do have an interesting and mysterious connection.
