Devil’s Slide, Morgan County, Utah

The Devil’s Slide formation is a parallel set of limestone traces tilted to the vertical and eroded down the center to produce a channel. The formation is more massive than the picture implies, being hundreds of feet in length with the channel more than 20 feet wide.

The description states:

1278 — THE DEVIL’S SLIDE NEAR THE UTAH — WYOMING BORDER IN WEBER CANYON ON THE U. P. RAILROAD AND HIGHWAY  U. S. 30

–Highway 30 has been replaced with Interstate 84, and there is a turnout area for visitors to stop and view the formation at their leisure. The card likely dates from the 1940s.
