  IMG_2147.JPG - The Center is near Devil's Gate —a long natural slash cut into a line of tall, brown rocks where the Sweetwater River flows. A nearby horseshoe-shaped cove, known as Martin’s Cove, was the where two Mormon handcart companies were hit by an early blizzard. Almost a third of the people in these companies froze or starved to death before the rescue wagons reached them. The Center commemorates this tragedy.
