This weekend DH and I visited family and cemeteries all over Utah. My car had almost seven hundred miles roll under its wheels and about as many bugs die on its windshield. I learned a Coney Dog (hot dog covered with chili and melted cheese) should not be eaten in a car since any food from this sloppy concoction that doesn’t make it to the mouth is worn for the rest of the day.
But this post is about a trip to see history. About sixty miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah and about thirty miles west of Interstate Fifteen---
Two replicas of the steam engines which were in use at that time are at the site for all to behold.
Engine 119 is like the one that came from the east and burns coal since it was available from that part of the country.
The location is a little off the beaten path but well worth the trip to see history come alive.
