the Shadier Side of Helper, Utah

"The history of the town of Helper, Utah, is tied to railroads and coal mining. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, Helper was home to nearly 6,000 people and had a bit of a shady reputation from the spoils of gambling, brothels and bars."

The White Lady of Spring Canyon

"Due west of Helper, in Carbon County, Utah is Spring Canyon, a one time coal mining mecca now filled with ghost towns. Here, along this rugged path, surrounded by mountains, boulders, mining remnants, and and the crumbling remains of once thriving buildings, roams an ethereal white lady."
