Headed to a spot in Utah known as 'Thistle Ghost Town'
Found this place on the internets via a list of cool places for photos in Utah. Now I maybe got lost and or didn't see everything, but really the entire place seemed a little talked up.
There were definitely some better shots to be had on the way there and the way back.
The victim of a mud slid this area is now feet deep into a pond / swamp that has since been frozen over this winter.
With carvings all over the walls of the structures, this place is most likely used by local kids as a right of passage, hang out spot of sorts.
Only a handful of shacks and one house with some accessories, this place is a great set of a disaster movie. Only one or two squirrels make the hill side home.
Once a slight disappointment has come and gone and you really have nothing else to take a shot of, driving on the nearby back roads and finding some great little landscape shots was the highlight of the trip.
There are a few great bluffs and views of the surrounding mountains and trails.
At a small junction, there is a man made heart formation on the hillside.
With the next few miles littered with great views, it makes the venture to the ghost town worth the gasoline.
