Creation: 1900

The Union Pacific Railroad tracks visible in the right half of this image connect Pulpit Rock near Echo City with Portland and San Francisco. The town provided coal and water for trains entering Echo Canyon. Echo began as a stopover on the Mormon Trail, becoming a junction between the First Transcontinental Railroad and a spur line to serve silver mines near Park City. Rock formations like this are found throughout the Wasatch Mountains.
