Blake Sawmill circa 1900The Ponderosa pine forests on the Strip have a logging history dating back to the early 1870's. Timber removed from the Mount Trumbull area of the Monument was used to build the Mormon Temple in St. George, Utah.  Timbers were hauled from Mt. Trumbull over the Temple Trail, a distance of nearly 70 miles. Logging actively occurred in the area until the 1960s at more than a dozen sawmills.
