The Mormon Trail: A Photographic Exhibit
Devil's Gate
Devil's Gate, Swet Water River, Rocky Mountains, 1869. Charles R. Savage, photographer.
A few miles farther and the pioneers reached Devil's Gate, another Oregon Trail landmark. The gate was a chasm 330 feet deep with the Sweetwater River running between the cliffs for about 200 yards. The pioneers camped a short distance beyond Devil's Gate and many of them walked back to get a better view. Thomas Bullock called it "a romantic spot."
