Hayden Expedition – Earthquake!
On this day 150 Years ago! (August 21, 1871)
An earthquake awakened the Hayden Expedition members sleeping at Camp Hovey. The first shock lasted 20 seconds. It toppled some trees and caused the horses to spring to their feet, but no one was injured. (In Burning Ground, Makawee and Graham had to scramble from the wickiup in case it collapsed).
