Alcove Springs

 Awhile back, husband and I stopped at Alcove Spring Park to do a little walk-about. Alcove Springs is on the Oregon-California trail and it's a large meadow where they used to stop and set up camp in the early 1800's. What's neat about it is there are many names and initials that were carved into the rock around the natural spring by the settlers. I have no clue how the letters were carved so deep into the stone but they are perfectly legible still today.
