Eastern Mojave Vegetation Uvada, Iron County, Utah.

Query: G.N.I.S.

The Union Pacific Railway enters Lincoln County, Nevada, near Uvada Utah. The line had originally been built from Salt Lake to Milford, Utah, by the Mormon Church as the Utah Southern. This line was extended on south to Uvada in 1899. In 1889-90, the Oregon Short Line threw up a grade and built tunnels as far south as the junction of the Clover Canyon with the Meadow Valley Wash, beginning several years of contention with the Union Pacific.

Elevation: 5659ft, 1725m.
