Deadman's Bar

Deadmans Bar


In 1886, four men set up camp on a wide gravel bar along the north bank of the Snake River to look for gold. Later, three of the men were found with their bodies half-buried in the Snake.
The three men had been weighted down with stones, but the river’s flow had fallen enough to expose their bodies. When law enforcement officers apprehended the fourth man, he admitted to killing his partners—but insisted that he’d acted in self-defense.  Did he get away with murder—three times over?

The site of the triple murder, now located within Grand Teton National Park, has ever since been known as Deadman’s Bar.

Allatoona Pass 360


This trail follows the original railroad grade of the Western and Atlantic Railroad into Allatoona Pass and proceeds to a scenic stroll along Lake Allatoona in Northwest Georgia. Civil War entrenchments can be visited at the top of both ridges adjacent to the pass. The trail through the pass is flat, ending with a single turn so gradual that it may not be noticed. The climb to the interpreted trail on the mountains on either side of the pass is moderate.

Big Dipper


(mouse over to see the outline)

The Big Dipper (is an asterism (not a constellation) of seven stars, with four defining a "bowl" or "body" and three defining a "handle" or "head", that is recognized as a distinct grouping in many cultures. These stars are the brightest of the formal constellation Ursa Major; six of them are second magnitude stars, while only Megrez (δ) is of third magnitude. The North Star (Polaris), the current northern pole star and the tip of the handle of the Little Dipper, can be located by extending an imaginary line from Merak (β) through Dubhe (α). This makes it useful in celestial navigation.
