Made July 2_, 1897 near mouth of Emigration Canyon, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Two yokes of oxen were used on the trek whenever possible but cattle-poor Mormons made do with fewer draft animals than most emigrants on the Oregon-California-Mormon Trail. This view is another looking generally south from the bench north of Emigration Canyon.
