Next week, on Wednesday July 6th, I will be visiting a few ghost towns and historical sites in Tooele County, and would love for you to join me! This is a free adventure, and all you need to bring is your vehicle full of gas, a sack lunch for each person in your group, and your camera ready to take some awesome pictures! (An iPod loaded with great music for the ride is also a bonus!)
All of these places are located south of Tooele. You do not need four wheel drive to reach any of these destinations. Any vehicle that will start when you turn the key will be able to make it on this adventure! (Okay, okay, of course you also need to make sure your tires are inflated, oil is checked, windshield washer fluid is full, etc! Growing up as the daughter of a mechanic, I had to add this in, or I wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight!)
We will meet at the McDonalds in Tooele at 10am. From there we will head over to the Stockton Jail, take a few pictures, then head over to Ophir. Ophir is where we will spend a few hours and eat lunch. After touring their visitors center, we will travel a little bit further south to the Mercur Cemetery. I am estimating that the entire adventure will end approximately 4pm.
This adventure is weather permitting, so stay tuned to Enjoy Utah! for complete up to date details.
