Town #33: REDMOND est. 1873

The next few towns are from another quick Thursday night trip to see parts of Utah. This time we left our children behind and took John's parents. Here John is on the outskirt of the town of Redmond on the northern border of Sevier County. There were a bunch of water birds in the pond behind the fence when we pulled up. I think John scared them all off. He is SO SCARY!

Redmond was named after three red hills nearby. This is a picture of an old service station in town. John's grandmother owned and operated this station with her first husband in the late 1930s and early 1940s until his death from an infection after some dental work. Dentists were even scarier back then.
