Bruff's Journey

Bruff's great adventure took him from Washington City (better known now as Washington, D.C.) overland to California, returning home across the isthmus of Panama. In California, he visited Sacramento and San Francisco. He also made an excursion into the Sierra Nevada (with Peter Lassen), to hunt for the non-existment “Gold Lake,” and took a “steamer” north, along the California coast, to Trinidad, to see the Gold Bluffs just to the north.
