PINE SCENIC HIGHWAY
The route of the proposed Alpia M
scobIc highway was inspected thi M
week by Frank A. Waugh, recreatioa M
collaborator of the U. 3. forestry '
service, and a party ot Salt Lakeraea H
Interested In the project. As out- H
lined, tho highway is 11 mile la
length along the divide at the sam- sf
mlt reached from the various can- H
yons near Salt Lake through which H
the county has constructed roads. It ,H
Is proposed to construct a road, treat
the hoad of lamb's canyon, which I H
n branch of Parley's canyon, to the M
.divide, past the numerous laire that !
I food Mill Creek, Big Cottonwood and M
fl-lttlo Cottonwood creeks to tbe head M
ot American Fork canyon with the M
I Salt Lako watershed on the right M
and Park City and Snydervllle oa M
tho left. H
By a comparatively easy grade the M
summit can bo reached through Par- M
ley's or American Fork canyon where M
roads ure already constructed aad M
the scento highway would also ioia M
I other roads near Brighton, according M
to plans. Ag the county of Salt Lake M
has already built 68 'miles of road M
In the Wasatch forest. Salt Latee rasa . H
, think Uto federal government should M
build this hlghllne road' as a com- H
I nocttng link tor all. It la conceded by
.many who have Inspected the rout M
that In scenic beauty the Alpine high- M
1 way Is second to no road in the - M
world . Two former official of the
