Re: I like it

Thank you, Tun! My favorite thing about the Wellsville Mountains is how they rise so steeply for 5,000 feet above the valley floor with very few foothills.

You took this right ouside the American West Heritage Center! That's where I work during the summer when it's open! The building you can see is the Visitors center!

Re: Hey!

Yes, I took this photo the day after I climbed Box Elder Peak. I wanted to take a picture of the mountain from far away to show how abuptly it rises from Cache Valley.

Gotta love the Cache

Valley!!! Jim Bridger named it
when he first discovered the
Great Salt Lake in 1824. Trappers
and fur traders searched for
freshwater streams and beaver
around the southern shores of the
lake in 1827. Awesome photo!!!

Re: Gotta love the Cache

Thanks, Jim Bridger was well known in Utah. He also has the highpoint of Rich County unofficially named after him. You can probably tell that I like Cache Valley since I have a lot of pages in that area and can name every mountain there.

Re: Gotta love the Cache

Yes Melinda, I noticed. You really
have some good beta in those pages.
You should be proud of yourself.
There's some people that don't know
the difference between ... the Great
Salt Lake and the Dead Sea. Many don't
bother to research the diversity of
the Great Basin & Colorado Plateau.
