tilting away from religion

If you use the definition of ghost town as “so far off the beaten path that there’s no Google street view”, this place fits the criteria.

If you use the definition of ghost town as “located ten miles from the nearest paved road”, this place fits the criteria.

If you use the definition of ghost town as “there were more owls than there were people”, this place fits the criteria.

If you use the definition of ghost town as “places my dad mentioned from his boyhood but that I can’t recall what he said exactly”, this place fits the criteria.

But then: it still has a post office. The ZIP code is 81080, and apparently there’s been a post office there since 1889. (Open weekdays from 10:30 to 12:30, and 8:30 to 10:30 on Saturday.)

And there’s also this church, with the cross taking a decided tilt toward the north. (“What does the inside of the church look like?” you should be asking yourself. Good thing I can help with that totally not at all self-serving sentence.)
