Mill Fork Cemetery

Throwing it back to November’s road trip again! (Scroll on down to the bottom of this post for a complete list of posts about this trip in order) The last full day of our trip was all about making our way, slowly but surely, back into Colorado so that we find a hotel close to

Abandoned Mill

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
