Description

After surviving great losses this is how one woman found her way to live a passionate life with her camera and Rider on the Pony Express Trail. It started out as a simple question: "How many stations are still standing today along the famous Central Overland Pony Express Trail?" It turned into a quest that closely resembles a treasure hunt, time and time again! As a Western Lifestyle photographer, Carla was excited to try to find the answers to that question and record what she found in photographs of the famous trail. This behind-the-scenes Journal is a record of her journey as she worked on that project. She found much more to see and experience while hunting for those treasures than she had ever imagined: - In California: historical towns, boarding houses, a reassembled Wells Fargo building, and the beautiful Sierra mountains with their rivers and tall pines. - In Nevada: historical mining towns, forgotten cemeteries, Native American petroglyphs, miles of two-track roads leading to rock ruins, historic forts left to decay in the desert, a castle, and a ride on a steam engine train. - In Utah: log cabins, a rock fort, beautiful marshes, a dog cemetery, simple dugouts and monuments on sidewalks in the middle of a big city. During the author's travels to and fro, again and again, between Sacramento, California, and Salt Lake City, Utah, she collected so much information and so many photographs that she had to pause to assemble it all...with hopes to later continue following the rest of the trail to St. Joseph, Missouri. Hop in and ride shotgun in spirit with Carla and her canine companion, Rider, as they share their day to day RV adventures, trials and triumphs, the people they meet on the trail, the view of the roads leading to their destinations and, of course, photos of those American treasures, the Pony Express Stations!
