Town #1: Delta

Our first town was Delta. We found this welcome sign as we neared the town. I say neared and not in because we could barely see Delta in the far distance. Delta must be one of those towns that is optimistic about its expanding real estate. This was the most impressive town sign we saw all day. Delta is the largest town in the vicinity, but we found out at the Great Basin Museum in Delta that it was one of the last towns to be established (in 1907).

Here is Delta's old welcome sign as it looked in 2004. The new sign is more impressive but less informative. I'm not sure what John is holding in his hand.

Oh, by the way, Delta is in Millard county in western central Utah. At some point I hope to include a map of Utah with these posts so that it is more obvious where we are at in the state.
