Ghost Town - Black's Fork Commisary

A ghosttown out in the Uinta moutains, Black's Fork Commisary. A logging town founded n 1870, it became a ghost town in 1930. Likely supplying logs to the charcoal kilns at Piedmont, where they made fuel for the railroad steam engines. It's hard to image what a hard life it had to be living there back in the day, and I read somewhere the work was easier in the winter when you could pull logs on sleds. Brrrr!
