    What the.....??

    Spent the night at this location. Pretty interesting part of Utah history.

    Anybody have a guess as to what this trench is, and where in Utah this is located?

    If Scott P were around he would've already posted the location in addition to providing a brief history.

    It's definitely south of Vernal. Milford is way too far west. Here's another clue:

    They're building foundations built out of flat sandstone rocks and shale.

    The Spirit railroad project through the northern Swell. Crazy that they spent so much time and money on a project that never materialized.

    If you look at a Google map of the entire northern Swell, you can identify multiple railroad cuts and fills from this project that never got off the ground.

    Tragic waste, really.
