About This Item

HenryMtns

BLM Visitor's patch from the Henry Mountains. The mountains are home to one of North America’s last free-ranging herds of bison. The animals are managed by the Utah Department of Wildlife. An annual count of the herd is made in August that provides the basis for thinning the herd by once-in-a-lifetime hunting permits. The Henrys were named by John Wesley Powell during his expeditions down the Colorado River. When Powell made his first trip in 1869, this region on contemporary maps was blank because the river and associated deep canyon prevented travel. One of the expedition’s duties was to perform an initial geographical survey. A party climbed to the river canyon rim and recorded the presence of the Henrys in the distance. A final survey of the mountains was not finished until the 1930s, the last such survey in contiguous U.S. It was also the last USGS survey completed solely from horseback. Other than an old mail/freight road that passed between Mt. Hillers and Mt. Pennell, there was no general access to the mountains until the 1950s when uranium miners opened up trails the lower elevations to motorized vehicles. Roads to the upper elevations did not exist until the 1960s.
