MORMON TRAIL: WINTER QUARTERS
This destination profoundly reflects the dichotomy of many stops on the road to civil justice.
Primarily remembered for the tragic deaths of over 600 Mormons who made camp here over harsh winter months, many view it as the place of beauty and hope it represented to those fleeing religious persecution on their way to a new life-- while others struggle with the relationship settlers had with the native peoples already living here.
