We visited Ophir yesterday, something we had been wanting to do since we moved here. Starting with breakfast at Penneys on Hwy 36 and then on to Ophir. Coming back we explored the Elk ranch in Rush Valley but saw no elk, then took a return drive along the Mormon trail to Grantsville and then home. A peaceful day as very little traffic on the road and the clouds and smog made a monochrome vista with the sun showing up occasionally.

First breakfast at Penneys - I skipped dinner the night before to be able to have this....

Our first stop on the way up the canyon was the Ophir Cemetery

A couple of shots of the mining apparatus left - there is quite a bit of the mining infrastructure left and is fascinating to look at.
