The weekend of 1 Dec 07, Tracy and I tried to find a trail way out in western Utah, but we
ended up getting sidetracked on the Pony Express Trail. We had a good time just wondering
around the area and imagining the logistics of the Pony Express Trail. We thought it was really
weird that everyone has heard of the Pony Express, but the whole thing only lasted a year and
a half before the telegraph went up. We also hiked along the North Fork of the Provo River
(Google Map) off the Mirror Lake Highway in the Uintas. The snow wasn't too bad, but it's
about time to break out the snowshoes.
