Welcome to the High Sierra History Forum. If you have general questions or comments this is the place to put them. The comments link sits at the bottom of the page.

The history forum is composed of entries concerned with the history of the locations our trails cross in the mountains between Lake Tahoe and Mount Whitney.

There is a breadcrumb to go up a level to the topics in the history forum at the top of this page.

There is also a High Sierra History and Historical Monuments page with images, trail guide and road map locations of Historical markers. Post up your perspectives on High Sierra History and its Monuments.

If you have a topic you'd like to write about, or share some images, videos, or other information about Sierra history I urge you to register and post up an article. Unregistered visitors can comment on any of the existing articles, but cannot post up new content or images.

Send me the information, and I will put it up for you.


To forget the past is to blind yourself in the present. If you can't see where you've been, you can't know where you are, and you won't be able to see where you are going.

Again, welcome to the Sierra History forum.
