Salt Lake City in Salt Lake County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Wilford Woodruff was the first to ascend the peak, Brigham Young the last,due to a recent illness. It was suggested that this would be a fitting place to "set up an ensign for the nations" where the Lord "shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth" as foretold in Isaiah 11:12. It was then named Ensign Peak, and in later years a standard was erected on its summit.
Erected 1989 by Sons of Utah Pioneers - Salt Lake Chapter. (Marker Number 23.)
