One of the most iconic mountains on the Wasatch Front, the westernmost edge of the Rocky Mountains, is Mount Timpanogos. It is a mountain that is so recognizable because of an American Indian legend that everyone knows, but is totally made up. The legend says that an Indian maiden, Utahna, committed suicide by throwing herself off the mountain in a Romeo and Juliet fashion after her true love, Red Eagle, died from injuries he suffered in a bear attack. Utahna then became part of the mountain and you can see her silhouette today as a maiden lying down. If you look just right, you can see the shape of the woman on the mountain. And once you see it, you will never see Mount Timpanogos the same way again.
