I have read alot of ficton about the west and the immigration from the East in the last century. Somewhere it always seems to mention Independence Rock as being to jump off palce for many wagon trains. A short detour from the direction I was taking but well worth it. I found the names of some pioneers still very ledgbile after all the weather forces and decades gone by. The walk around to the south side enables you to see more signatures along with sighting of wildlife. The hike is more of a stroll except around the south base when you have to be careful bettting close enough to see signatures. The rest stop is clean and area maps and history on the walls provides additional info for travelers.
