"Gone and Forgotten" Thompson Springs Things to Do Tip by goodfish
Thompson Springs Things to Do: 4 reviews and 18 photos
Through the cattleguard and about 1/2 mile up the dirt road from the pictographs is the old pioneer cemetery of the bygone settlement of Sego. One or two engraved slabs, a ragged fence here and a broken bit of stone there are bleak memorials to men who came to work the mines and ended up below this dusty scrap of ground. There may also be wives lost to childbirth or exhaustion, and children taken by diseases that plagued the young decades ago. It's an appropriate reflection of hard life in a harsh environment: poignant in its loneliness and nameless heaps of dirt and rubble.
Address: Near Thompson Springs, Utah
Directions: From the "rock art" site, go 1/2 mile up the canyon on the dirt road. Turn right at fork to Sego Canyon - the cemetery is on the right.
