Each day had seemed to grow colder and the wind to blow harder; and now and then snow squalls would come up and terrify us with their petty tornadoes. Brilliantly as the sun shone upon us, .we were glad to creep back into our carriages. Our way led down Wild Cat Canon, a pass so narrow and winding that it is not surprising that the Mormons were long in finding it. It now affords them a natural easy descent into Prairie Dog Hollow.
