The Editorís Corner


El Camino Real, the 'King's Highway', was the pioneer route from old Mexico north into California

(the route is now US 101 through Santa Barbara); A recent trip to the central coast reminded me of

some of the other pioneer roads that our ancestors used. Early trails followed the rivers, of course,

but it was also necessary to ford the rivers and travel cross-country. The original Boston Post Road

(from New York to Boston); the National Road running west from Cumberland, Maryland, the

Shenandoah Valley (south-west through the 'Great Valley' of Virginia); and the Wilderness Road,

blazed by Daniel Boone through the Cumberland Gap into Kentucky, are tributes to the hard work,

resourcefulness, and perseverance of our ancestors who helped to form and shape this great nation.
