|Newsflash! Peggy was miniaturized at the Beaver Valley Chevron!|
Since our visit, I've looked up some interesting tidbits about Beaver, Utah. What I didn't know was that it was settled in 1856 by Mormon pioneers. It's also a lot bigger than it appears from the Interstate (I-15). It's home to over 2,500 people.

The Tushar Mountains to the east of Beaver include Delano Peak, the seventh highest peak in Utah at 12,169 feet.
We missed all of this as we sped on by (eventually) up the I-15. Maybe someday I'll go back for a closer look.
This is beautiful country. Real America.
