Aerial Donner Named from the Donner Party Cannibalism Lake CA

  • Seen from Highway Donner Summit
  • To reach California from the east, pioneers had to get their wagons over the Sierra Nevada mountain range. … At the head of what is now called Donner Lake, they found a low notch in the mountains and became the first overland settlers to use thepass. The pass was named after a later group of California-bound settlers.
  • Five people died before reaching the Sierra Nevada mountains: Luke Halloran, John Snyder Hardkoop, Wolfinger and William Pike. Of the 83 members of the Donner Party who were trapped in the mountains, only 45 survived to reach California.
  • The Donner Party, a group of 19th century American pioneers who became snowbound in the Sierra Nevada and supposedly resorted to cannibalism, may not have eaten each other after all, suggests a new study on bones found at the group’s Alder Creek campsite hearth in California.
