Geology of the National Parks in Pictures - The Pony Express Trail

The next up on my tour of the National Parks in pictures:

Last year my family and I headed out to find some geodes in the Utah desert. Along the way we traveled along the Pony Express Trail. Although this trail spreads on through many states, here is a small portion of it, near Dugway, UT.

This post marked the location of the Pony Express, which ran from 1860-1861.

Recreation of the Simpsons Springs site. It is clear when you enter the building though that many animals now use this as a shelter from the heat of the day.
