Thanks for adding this. Cool to see what it was like before the road. I doubt people imagined going up there for a picnic in those days let alone climbing the rocks.

Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, in 1869. A man can be seen with his horse at the bottom near the bridge (right). As people in the east came to see O'Sullivan's photographs the legend of the pioneering west as a land of limitless opportunity even for Americans came to form.
