Those are kind words and appreciated words. Thank you. I'm really enjoying Utah, so many varied types of scenery, mountains and canyons to enjoy. I'll keep working on the desert peaks for awhile. I did get to see several wild horses when I attempted the Cedar Mtn range from the Skull Valley side last november.
I've always wondered where 'Hastings Pass' was located.
I'm assuming the Donner-Reed Party had originally planned
to travel south through Skull Valley, and connect with the
Pony Express Route. Instead, they put their trust in this
'Hastings' fellow. I guess the rest is history. Nice page!
Weird places are some of the best to visit, especially if they have bristlecone trees like the one I visited yesterday. Ya gotta love these desert peaks. Donna Reed was indeed a member of the Donner party. ; )
