Pre spring wandering.

So after finding the stansbury island petroglyphs and the redman pictograph last weekend I decided to spend another nice sunday out looking for story rock. Story rock is a rock full of oceanic petroglyphs that the Hawaiian settlers left in the late 1800's, there is hardly any information on this rock. So after talking with a few friends we set out to find it. after about 2 hours of hiking around we found it and it was definitely something different. after spending some time looking/wandering around the rock we decided to head back down to the old town of Iosepa and have some lunch. after that we decided to take the scenic route from there to eureka and find some train tunnels. While in eureka we met an old timer that owned most of the buildings in town and he opened one of them up to show us his 1918 Studebaker that still ran! he also had some old BMW in there with it but i wasn't really interested in that So after spending some time there we set off to find the tunnels, we found the first one and you are able to drive through it, roughly 200ft or so. after that we decided to start making our way home since it was getting late and we spent more time in eureka than planned(but it was worth it) so it was another great day of wandering and exploring more things i had no idea northern utah had.

I'll quit yappin' and get on with the pics now

entering Iosepa

the only remaining piece of the town from Iosepa

the coolest headstone i've ever seen

sea turtle

some fossils that we found while hiking around

while leaving Iosepa i had to get a pic of the aloha sign

a wild mustang we ran across. there was actually six more of them but they took off the other way that this one did.


to be continued........
