Brothers pinned by an arrow.

Statue: Brothers Pinned Together By An Arrow

On July 27, 2021 we saw this statue of the two boys pinned together by an arrow in Alda, outside the Archway attraction, a couple of miles west on I-80 of the historical marker. This statue is better than other landmarks about the attack.

The Archway

Fantastic -- the history of the expansion to the west. We've passed this attraction several times but the timing to stop wasn't right. This time we planned our trip around the Archway's operating hours. So glad we did; everything about it is first class.

It took us 2 hours to experience the whole exhibit. Don't plan on eating there because it doesn't have a restaurant. You can purchase bottled drinks and prepackaged sandwiches in the souvenir shop.

The wagon trail.

The Archway

Great stop, The Archway is a self-guided tour, and great for stretching your legs on a long trip.
