Town #5: Lynndyl est. 1904

Lynndyl was our last stop on our trip to the Great Stone Face. Lynndyl is different from the other towns that we had stopped at that day because it wasn't started as a farming community. It started as a railroad station. The trains didn't even stop here at first unless they were flagged. The town was called Lynn at first, but they had to change the name when they established a post office since there was already a Lynn, Utah. So they added the "dyl" to the end of it. Residents lived in tents for several years. I'm not sure how they managed that in the heat. It was really hot when we stopped for this picture. It reached 107 degrees in Delta that day.
