Ben Cartwright and Dan Blocker as "Hoss".

LOL...I see that Hoss and Ben are holding down their hands... Just incase they do the Dr. Strangelove salute.

Drove by the Ponderosa quite often at the Lake. For some reason, never stopped in.

I guess there's just too much "real" history about the area for me to take the "tv" history at any level. But with family in Nevada since before it was a state and living at the Lake for a long time, that's to be expected.

Just to the north of the Ranch was the location of the incline (hence Incline Village) that dragged timber up the mountain to a flume that went through the Sierra and down to Washoe Lake on the other side. Timber eventually ended up in Virginia City.
