It is a picture that may soon fade from much of the Top of Utah. On a recent summer afternoon, horses moved easily around a spacious corral on Emerald Drive in Layton, apparently unfazed by passing traffic and large housing areas across Cherry Lane. Across the street, a field of recently cut grain is visible, bordered by a sod farm and nearby Andy Adams Park to the south.This unique mix of rural life in an urban setting fits very much into the scenery of Davis County's largest city. But this blend of animals, open space and people may be less common in the future.Urban sprawl is coming, and growth may eventually consume many of the fields in Layton, as it has in many neighboring cities. The projections for the Top of Utah and the Beehive State overall are growth, growth and more growth.
