Our next stop was Register Cliffs. These were just a few miles from the ruts. Nearby was one of the popular camping spots for the settlers and just like people today, they also liked to leave behind there notice to the world that 'they were here'. Along these sandy cliffs are many inscribed names dating back to the 1820s. We never found any that old, but did find many in the 1850s. And even some as recent at 2003.
And this last photo is looking behind what I had just driven through. We hit a patch of rain and hail. Luckily the hail was small, but they were plentiful. The ground was absolutely covered with them. It was so dark I could hardly see at times. But we drove through it all in just a few miles. Looking back, this was the scene.
