Made 1995 Northwest of Grantsville, Utah.

View generally northwest toward Dolomite Point. This picture was made a little farther along than the previous one and looking in the opposite direction. The Hastings Trail worked its way along the valley floor on its way to rounding Timpie Point, a few miles beyond here. Timpie Point is the northernmost extent of the Stansbury Mountains and the place where the road enters Skull Valley. The foothills in this view are the east flank of the Stansburys. Wetlands to the right of this location kept the trail tucked up against the foothills from here until it entered Skull Valley.
