Description

Two images used here.

The Station (Simpson's Spring, Pony Express Trail House) lies in the background. West Desert, Utah. The wagon wheel image was taken in my dad's backyard.

I was standing near the spring when I took this photo. This is where travelers would gather water during their journey through the desert terrain, back in the 1800's.

Special thanks to Carla for putting this together for me. She actually put another set of images together prior to this one. But due to miscommunication on my part, the wrong images were combined. However, Carla was more than happy to fix my mistake with no complaints whatsoever. Carla has been of great help to me during the past year.

Thank you Carla! :)
