Today we left the Motel Six in Moab (where we stayed to be close to ARCHES NATIONAL PARK). We headed towards the ghost town of Cisco. Just before Cisco, we found a geocache.
Cisco was absolutely amazing. Its just hard to describe! So many abandoned homes and businesses and a very tiny Post Office which was abandoned and unlocked. According to an article on the internet, there are still a few residents, and we think we saw the home of one. It was the only place we saw that was being maintained and taken care of. Cisco was used for filming parts of VANISHING POINT AND THELMA AND LOUISE. We spent a couple of hours there, exploring and taking pictures.

From Thompson Springs we headed north a bit to another ghost town: SEGO. Here is a picture of the road to SEGO.

We left Thompson Springs in the late afternoon and headed towards our lodging. We made a brief stop in Green River, and Peggy bought some melons at a farmstand. We stopped in Hanksville and had supper at
STAN's BURGER SHAK and then on to our lodging: a very nice Rodeway Inn in Cainesville, Utah. It was a great day!!!!!
