Echo Canyon is a ravine through the Wasatch Mountains in northeastern Utah. It's walls range from 800 to 1200 feet in height. Initially used by emigrants, most notably the Mormons under Brigham Young, this canyon led to the shores of the Great Salt Lake. Here is one of the last legs of the Union Pacific Rail Road, just nine months after its historic joining with the Central Pacific at Promontory Point. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Town Views - United States , Utah
