Not all great encounters with wildlife occur in pristine wilderness, in wildlife refuges or in hard-to-reach habitats. Great encounters can occur when you're stuck in a long line of traffic on a state highway.
Those who travel through Ogden Canyon are well familiar with the project to replace the line that transports water from Pineview Reservoir to Ogden. Travel is restricted to one lane, alternating east or west, led by a follow-me car in daylight hours and regulated by a temporary traffic light. Phase II of the project has placed the westbound traffic light midway through the canyon at the Alaskan Inn, and the delay might be as long as 10 minutes.
