Photo of the Week - Virgin Village (Utah, USA)

On the road to Zion National Park in Utah, some years ago, I stumbled upon this bizarre cartoon wild-west village called Virgin, complete with jail, saloon, stagecoach, bank and shop. When I was there, it was kind of eerie with not another soul in sight and an ominous storm cloud brewing overhead. Why do people build such strange places - a Virgin ghost-town.

Hi Marc!
Sorry I couldn’t visit you for the last weeks! I’m trying to catch-up and see the wonders you have around!

Amazing Ghost town; if at least there was someone there collecting tickets... ;))
Learned a lot with the secret hospital post!
And your post on Africa (my «unknown continent») is excellent!!

Meanwhile, one of the most beautiful Forts in India waits you and your comments at Blogtrotter: – The Amber Fort! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
