| The travelers found their first good water and grass at Black Rock where there is a hot springs surrounded by about 20 acres of meadow. The emigrants were understandably relieved to reach Mud Meadows, and find water and grass for the animals. From there they went on to Fly Canyon down a wagon slide, and on through the High Rock Canyon to California.
All of these sites are within driving distance from Soldier Meadows Ranch. You can enjoy the modern comforts and good food provided by the ranch while getting a taste of the trials that faced the pioneers.
