A Will Rogers Tour

tour guideWill Rogers was an American humorist, writer, and actor. You've probably heard his name in this context: "As the great Will Rogers once said," followed by some clever quote, such as "I don't make jokes; I just watch the government and report the facts."

Rogers lived from 1879 to 1935, when his life was cut short by a plane crash in Alaska.

We enjoyed visiting the Rogers family ranch near Malibu. It's a California State Park and features horses and hiking trails as well as the house tour.
