Come in, sit down and relax for a few minutes while you look at the pages of our Carbon County photo album. The photographs have been reduced in size to about 1 1/2 inch x 1 inch to save space on the server and thus making it possible to add even more photographs for each area. If you see a photograph here that you would like a larger picture of e-mail Kathy Hamaker. I'd be happy to e-mail you the photo file so you can print it out on your computer. If you have any photographs in your possession that you would like to donate I'd be happy to add them also. Thank you for your help.
