More Utah Ghost Towns
One day we all went on a circle drive north of Bryce Canyon looking for some ghost towns.
The first one we found was Widtsoe, a town that revolved around the sawmills there. This must have been the mansion belonging to the owner - I've never seen such a large house in a ghost town.
It's quite a fixer-upper.
Someone was already living in the back room.
What is this - a baby bunny? It was too big for a mouse.
Our next stop was the gristmill/creamery in Orisis. It was built by a resident of Widtsoe, 13 miles north of town.
Near Circleville is a cabin that was Butch Cassidy's boyhood home.
You can just walk in!
Phil and I left a couple days early so we could stay at Koosharem Reservoir and make a run over to the Richfield Walmart.
It was beautiful but the winds we unbelievable.
But at least that chased the bugs away!
