Central Utah is Mining Country

Central Utah is known for its coal mining company towns and other mining establishments.  During the 1880s the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad, seeking a route from Denver to Salt Lake City, discovered vast coal fields along the way.  Coal mining became the major catalyst development.  Mine explosions in the early 1900s killed many people and brought violence and eventual unionization to the mines.  Despite the mining tragedies, coal mining continues to play a vital role in the economic and social development throughout the region even today.  However, when it comes to the Utah High School Activities Association, Central Utah is known more for its 11 member schools stretched over five districts and four counties.  In the height of the beautiful autumn weather of September 2016, I had the amazing opportunity to visit all 11 Central high schools and five districts in the span of four days.
