Digging up the past
Archaeologists started digging into the past this week at Donner Memorial State Park in order to move into the future.

The archaeological survey is part of an environmental review for the proposed High Sierra Crossing Museum near the entrance of the park. Archaeologists are looking for prehistoric and historic artifacts on the proposed museum site.

A surface survey began on Tuesday and work will continue until either Nov. 2 or 3, said State Park Ranger Don Schmidt.
