Town #27: HATCH est.1872
Driving north along highway 89, we next came to the little town of Hatch. It was named after Meltiar Hatch who settled here with his two wives. Because of flooding problems with the Sevier River, in 1901 to 1904, the town site was moved one and a half miles and combined with other small communities. I like that in this picture you can start to see the red rocks of Red Canyon behind me. We were coming on Bryce Canyon country.
