Mystical Buildings 

Pin It
What building or place in Utah gives off a mystical vibe to you?

Christopher Westergard: My bedroom, ’cause that’s where the magic happens.

Rachel Scott: Gilgal Gardens. But that may be because I dropped acid there once and took a bunch of crazy photos.

Amanda Salazar: The top of the Cirque at Snowbird on a pow day, especially when there is no sign of the snow stopping. It doesn’t get much more mystical for me.

John Paul Brophy: Since the Summum Pyramid was the first thing I saw after surviving a rollover accident on Interstate 15 one night, I have to admit to getting a bit of a vibe from it.

Rachel Piper: That creepy abandoned castle on 300 West and 1300 South. What the heck goes on in there?

Bryan Mannos: Goblin Valley in a rainstorm. Freaky stuff.

Scott Renshaw: If we’re talking about a place where events take place that are inexplicable using normal human standards of reason ... I’ll go with the Capitol.

Jesse Fruhwirth: The Bonneville Salt Flats feel haunted by the Donner Party. Imagine being hungry and surrounded by salt. I’d be a pissed-off ghost, too.

Max Goff:
Sweeping the southern edge of Utah, the Navajo Nation encompasses much of northern Arizona and parts of New Mexico. Hopi Land is the bull's-eye of the Navajo Nation. My vision quest led me there, and it was there I found my vision. Hopi Land is filled with land spirits. The Navajo Nation shares their company.

Ted Scheffler: For me, staring down into the Baldy Chutes from Alta’s Mount Baldy is pretty mystical.

Lia Pretorius: The beautiful, gothic City & County building. I drive by it every day in awe and am dying for a full tour. I think this building is the next logical filming site for another much-needed Ghost Busters sequel.
