Doug "Boy Scout" Harding started 2016 homeless, with plans to move into an Ogden apartment after three decades of hopping trains and living on the streets. Standard-Examiner photojournalist Benjamin Zack documented Harding’s last days living out of a backpack in January, as well as his move into stable housing. Over the next year, Zack followed Harding, — who describes himself as a “retired hobo” — as he adapted to his new life indoors.
