  1. There were a couple a version but in sum:
    Ucanogos was a beauiful daughter of an indian chief. She and Timpanac, a strong brave from another tribe, fell in love. The chief came up with a contest(although in one version the daughter came up with the contest so the chief did not make her marry the richest man) and whoever won would have his daughter's hand in marraige. The challenges included killing a animal with bare hands, racing around the lake, and climbing to the top of the mountain. Timpanac was the bravest and strongest and was sure to win and the other braves were jealous. They murdered him by throwing up off the mountain. Ucanogos was so heartbroken by his death that she died of a broken heart in her fathers arms (another version was she threw herself off the same mountian).
    The heart of the Timpanogos caves is said to be the symbol that their spirits embraced and they are united in death.
