We went up above Croydon, it is a small unincorporated community in northeastern Morgan County, Utah, United States. It is part of the Ogden–Clearfield, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. Accessible from Interstate 84, it is home to Holcim's Devil's Slide Cement Plant and several hundred residents.Lost Creek runs through this small unincorporated town, just northeast of the Devil's Slide rock formation.
Cattle and sheep ranches can be found throughout the valley and in the surrounding mountains. Croydon is also home to the annual Widowmaker snowmobile and motorcycle hill climbing events. Founded in 1862, the community was originally named Lost Creek. The name was changed to honor Croydon, England, the origin of many of the settlers.
We found some interesting fungus growing on the side of a tree and some wild flowers that were just starting to pop their heads out of the cold ground.
The city cemetery was close by so we took a little walk
around it getting the kinks out of our knees and back.
