Abandoned Mill

by Kaylah Stroup

Throwing it back to November’s road trip again today! After catching the ghost town of Frisco at sunset, Jeff and I headed back to Provo for the night. We had stayed there the night before and found a great hotel at a super price so it seemed like an easy choice to go back that way for a good night’s sleep. Plus there was an In-N-Out like two miles away from the hotel so duh. This was also the time both of us started to feel sick. We slept in as much as possible, which isn’t very late at all since we’re early birds, and then started off on another day of adventure. It was the last full day of our trip so we decided it would be best to start working out way back toward Colorado but before we could do that there was one thing we had to check out!

Located on the side of a mountain in a tiny town in Utah, this now abandoned refinery only operated for a few short years from 1921 to 1925. These days it’s looking a little rough. The ruins that remain are covered in terrible graffiti. But boy, oh boy! They are a sight to behold. I’m not sure my photos can properly shows just how HUGE this place is. It was a pretty tiring hike considering the massive cold my body was trying to fight but wow, what a spot! I don’t think it’d have quiet the impact it does if it didn’t have such incredible views though. Utah is just gorgeous!

I think I like the graffiti! Usually I hate it but I love how colorful it is against the natural backdrop.

Something about this setting feels very Hunger Gamesy to me. I love it.

Gorgeous photos. I keep telling myself that I need to explore some abandon places around me, I just haven’t done it, yet.
