Yuba City is nestled in the mountains of Northern California.  It was settled in 1848 and become the county seat of Sutter County in 1856 after winning it back from the town of Nicolaus.  Over the year’s Yuba has had it’s fair share tragedies and scares.  The 1955 Christmas Flood, the B-52 crash in 1961,  and in 1976 a bus crash killed 27 Yuba City High school students.  In 1978 five young men would go missing, this is the story of the Yuba County Five.

Big Timber is the county seat of Sweet Grass County in Montana, with a population of only 1600.  It’s named after nearby Big Timber creek.  The town is located east of the Crazy mountains.  It’s even home to the Crazy Mountains Museum.
The Crazy Mountains are a small 40-mile long “island” of mountains in Western Montana, they are the youngest mountain range in the country.  They were known as a mystical place to the Native Crow tribe.  Known for being unpredictable.  And, perhaps they are as many learned after Arron Hedges went missing only for his remains to turn up years later 11 miles from the campsite he started from.
