Carbon County Reviews

1 review
Carbon County is pretty good. The scenery is great and if you are really into doing outdoor activities this is a great place for it. The climate is very deserty with lots of plateaus: we have hot summers and cold winters. There isn't any gang violence that I know of, and people here are generally decent. A lot of people here are very religious, mostly Mormon but there are quite a few Catholics depending on which city you live in. The schools are pretty good for the most part too. The only real problem about this county is that there is a slight drug problem.
