BLM interns have fun retracing the Donner Party trail
Are you a summer intern? Are you fetching coffee? Answering phones? Hiking a trail that once helped kill 44 people?
The Donner Party suffered their causalities in California, but it can be argued their real problems began in Utah. And those problems are what the BLM says the interns, plus a support and film crew, are retracing.
From the looks of the tweeted photos, it looks like the interns are having a good time.
Full of youthful enthusiasm, they set out on their journey across the Great Salt Desert. https://twitter.com/hashtag/DonnerParty?src=hash">#DonnerParty https://twitter.com/hashtag/HastingsCutoff?src=hash">#HastingsCutoff http://t.co/fLNgE3gwdH">pic.twitter.com/fLNgE3gwdH— BLM-Utah (@BLMUtah) https://twitter.com/BLMUtah/statuses/486289301114601472">July 7, 2014
I hope none of the interns are named Hastings.
Hiking swell through Skull Valley, left behind by the 1,000s that traveled before us.
