Regarding Placer County Emigrant Road. Robert M. Watson: Tahoe City Lawman
By Mark McLaughlin - May 24, 2017 https://thetahoeweekly.com/2017/05/33548/
In 1930, less than two years before he died, Watson constructed a granite monument near Emigrant Pass, a piece of history that still stands. Incredibly, Watson’s homemade commemorative marker, dedicated “to pioneers and men who served their country in wars and settling the country” at an elevation of 8,774 feet has withstood 87 winters at the top of Squaw Valley. Today, the Emigrant Road is now part of the 100-mile Western States Trail Race, an internationally renowned ultra-marathon endurance race for equestrians and runners.
