James Beckwourth April 6, 1798-October 29, 1866


James Beckwourth was an American mountain man, fur trader, and explorer. An African American born into slavery in Virginia, he later moved to the American West. He is credited with the discovery of this Beckwourth Pass through the Sierra Nevada Mountains between present day Reno, Nevada and Portola, California during the California Gold Rush years, and improved the Beckwourth Trail, which thousands of settlers followed to central California.

Jerome Byczek October 6 1948-March 2 2010


Jerome (Jerry) Byczek was an explorer also. Most of us only knew Jerry by his geocaching name byjer. Jerry was at home in the vast high deserts of Nevada and there was little he didn't know about it's flora and fauna. He was a great contributor to geocaching and is missed.

Jerry had placed a cache on this pass that was archived since his passing.
Thought it was time for another one!
