Golden Spike NHS

On to Utah, an area that seems so very familiar after binge watching all six seasons of Hell on Wheels!

The tale of Thomas Durant, Leland Stanford, and the challenge of uniting the east & west coasts by railroad. This afternoon we visited the Golden Spike National Historic Site. It truly was Hell on Wheels, at least temperature wise- 99 degrees in the shade.

Inscribed on the Golden Spike were these words: “May God continue the unity of our Country as this railroad unites the two great Oceans of the world.”

Tonight we camp at another Harvest Host site near Salt Lake City – Wasatch View Ranch!
