Title Mountain Names Remembered
Description We are now nearing the top of the mountain. We pass the Alpine station and make the steep ascent to the Skyline Drive. Detourlng across the Skyline we pass John August Lake, named for John August Anderson, who built a ditch about 1896 from the lake that was there. As we go around the Danish Knoll, we see the Swedish Knoll and Cox's Knoll in the distance and drive along Wagon Road Ridge, named by early settlers who traveled it with team and wagon. Turning around, we go back to the Skyline Drive, and our guide points out the road to Emery County and the Horseshoe Flat where Sanpete and Emery Counties held a grand reunion in 1921. Now we are at Horseshoe, still streaked with snow, where eons ago Red men named this picturesque mountain. As we make the return trip down the mountain road we dis-cover a few names we have missed-The Dungeon, Willow Creek, Birch Springs-and know that other years and other times will bring more old and new names to enjoy. We know we shall always treasure the names and stories remembered, the beauty that is forever there, the strength that comes from these hills. Source: Ephraim's First One Hundred Years, p. 75. Personal knowledge of Perry Plummer and Leslie L. Madsen. -82-
