Ogden gets a bad reputation, but from your pics you would never know. It looks like downtown is heading in the right direction! Well, for the most part; those stucco buildings could use a little more pizaz.
Ogden certainly has a wonderful location with that stunning mountain backdrop. I can see why my cousin, who grew up where I did in flat boring Northwest Ohio, seems to be quite happy living in Salt Lake City.
Thanks for all the comments. Ogden is a pretty nice little town and a lot is changing there. UTA is currently holding public meetings for a planned streetcar line to connect downtown and the FrontRunner station to the university and McKay-Dee hospital.
It's surprising at how similar the cities are, especially with the foothills and the railroad tracks. Of course, I think area around downtown Ogden, outside of the western area, looks far more cleaner and nicer than Salt Lake.
