Noted historian Ray Egan begins the new history talk season by looking into the facts relating to Naches Pass and the steep grade where the pioneers may have had to lower their wagons with a long rope. Some early sources say extra rope was made from the hides of their own oxen. Ray explores a controversial topic: is the story truth or legend?
