Mormon pioneer Ebenezer Bryce homesteaded near the town site of Tropic, in 1875, but the work of scratching a living from the rugged land became too hard. He left five years later for more promising areas in Arizona. The name of Bryce Canyon National Park commemorates his efforts. He is remembered as saying of the area, “Well, it’s a hell of a place to lose a cow.”
