Shortly after their marriage in 1982, Ken and Brenda Gallacher hung up a map of Utah on the back of a door in their Salt Lake County home and started visiting every city, town and ghost town on the map, nearly 600 spots in all. They are visiting their final destination – Promontory Point – on Monday and on Tuesday, the Gallachers join us to talk about their discoveries from Abraham, Utah to Zane, Utah.
