I moved to Utah about three months ago — and I have to say it’s been the best personal move of my life.
I’ve never lived in a place where I’m literally a stone’s throw from a mountain and all of the outdoor fun a growing boy could want. I’ve never lived in a place where I can go fishing as often as I want on the endless number of rivers, lakes and creeks. It’s beautiful here, and I love it.
But I’ve also never lived in a place where everything seems to shut down on Sunday.
Contrary to what my family and friends think back home, I can always get a good cup of coffee and strong alcoholic drink here in Ogden; however, it’s hard to explain how empty towns across the Top of Utah seem on Sundays.
Driving by closed storefronts and restaurants quickly turned into the only real culture shock I’ve experienced so far.
That being said, these last few weekends have been spent finding the best eateries to go to on Sundays. Why? Because I don’t like cooking on my days off.
