Decent down Aspen Hill


Thomas Bullock, July 10, 1847

"A She Bear & two cubs were seen by brother Cloward going over a high hill on our left hand. Descended by two steep pitches, almost perpendicular, which on looking back from the bottom looks like jumping off the roof of a house to a middle story, then from the middle story to the ground & thank God there was no accident happened. Presidents Young and Kimball cautioned all to be very careful & locked the Wheels of some Wagons themselves. It was a long, steep, & dangerous descent."
