During my roadtrip through the West Coast of the United States, I stopped by the Donner Pass. A location with quite some history. During the time of the Californian Gold Rush, fortune seekers made their way to the Gold area in the state of California. They decided to take a rather dangerous road as the Donner Pass was subject to bare wintery circumstances. Eventually the Donner party was trapped by the heavy weather without food or warmth. Rumour has it that members of the party started eating each other.
