Some might think it’s “creepy” that I find wandering in a cemetery “fascinating”, but there are so many stories to be told, you will want to return again and again in order to see them all! It’s a great place to learn about history and the people who made a difference in our state.

Stay tuned to Enjoy Utah as I add more descriptions to the agenda.)
