Ophir Historic District | 12 Utah Staycations

While planning our RV Trip, I called up my friend Chamaine from Wandering Families to see what cool things to visit. She gave me plenty of places to visit and Ophir Ghost Town is one of them! Ophir was a mining town that was founded in 1870 when silver was found. As soon as that silver dried up, everyone left. There are a few souls who still live there and I don't blame them.

My toddler loves to comes along with me so we often make an outing of it. We bring a list of the produce we want for the upcoming week. My son loves helping me find the fruits and veggies we need. He is much more willing to eat the veggies he helped pick out! We always grab a couple extra pieces of fruit to have as

Lantern Fest | Tooele

Remember last year when we told you about Lantern Fest? Well, it's happening again! Mark your calendars for April 30th! Adam Ritchey is sharing his photos and experience with his family from 2015. Basically, it's like a Tangled scene in Tooele. Sounds amazing right? Last year I was able to attend the lantern fest held at the Seabase facility near Tooele. This was a first for me and my family. In just over a month, I'll attend my second located at the Miller motor speedway. It was something we won't forget. The Salt Project has spend countless hours trying to
