And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

More Dodge Madness
The Bedwells delivered mail from Nevada City to Alleghany for years. After Sam retired his daughter Sue took over. They actually did favors for people on their route, which I'm sure today would be verboten by the postal service.
Allegheny is an old mining town way back in the hills. Love this image. And, it's a Dodge Mr. Bedwell was driving!

Took a drive up I-5 past Shasta, and into the western mountains.
From near the micro sized town of Gazelle, you could look south east and see Shasta and Black Butte, from across a fine field of green. You can see the top of the Whitney Glacier, the longest one in California. It flows down from the top right between Shasta and Shastina, about six miles long.
