On the trail of Tragedy
Westward from Egan Station. the route crosses Nevada country almost as empty today as it was during the "Pony Express" lonely rides. Evergreened ranges alternate with broad valleys, most of them desert dry but a few, like the Ruby, set with lakes or marshes fed by snowmelt streams. Here the Indin war took its greatest toll.
A rough stone records the tragedy at Dry Creek Station: John Applegate, Ralph Lozier, killed by Indians 1873 in a speckled valley below Eagle Butte.
