Made near Lakepoint, UT.
Here an "Iron Cross"—a sturdy marker made from steel rail—is placed along the Hastings Cutoff of the California Trail. The Donner-Reed Party used this portion of the trail and it is often given their name.
There is a possibility, currently under investigation, that graves from early in the trails era are near this spot.
