Here's some more pictures!

Grafton Utah was originally settled in 1859. It is now a ghost town, but is was first in 1866 to 1868 that the people had to leave this hard-place-to-live town. A few people moved back in 1868 to try once again. It has been a ghost town since 1945. There are only a few restored buildings. The log home is just three rooms, with a sleeping loft. I tried to imagine living in those three small rooms. I imagine at the time, they were grateful for such a place. I would be forever distracted looking at the beauty of the place. They probably didn't have much time for such distraction. There is a tiny cemetery close by that has been lovingly restored, or it's been well kept all these years. It fascinates me how people have lived in the past. I don't think I could have done it. I love boneless, skinless chicken too much!
