However, there is a website, www.topozone.com that has online topographic maps, and some of the towns can be found on the maps, while others are too little, or not enough known of them to be on the maps. If you would rather have me look for the ghosttowns for you, I will gladly do so if you post back a list of names of the towns that you want checked.

The website listings for UT are good.One not to miss is Ophir,S of Tooele.Go up the beautiful canyon and enjoy.Keep a sharp eye out.There are hidden sites.When I first went to this canyon while going to college nearby(1969),I was able to explore things that are off limits now,like mine shafts.(I'm not that bright)There was numerous artifacts there for the looting.Mine cars were everywhere.Empty houses could be seen up close and personal.NO MORE.It is a must see though.One canyon over was M ercur.Once quite a large town.Lots of photogenic ruins and dangerous places to visit.NO MORE.But do go up to the Barric Mines visitor center.Go up American Fork Canyon and see the sites of some former mine towns.S Ut has the best ghosts to visit.The listings on this site are good.
