Heber Valley

While I wait for my server to heal, I thought I would add a few new photos. Here are some pictures of Provo Cayon, Midway and Heber. We've had a few hot days and a substantial amount of snow melt.

The Heber Valley grew substantially after the 2002 Winter Olympics. I am not sure, however, if the growth will continue at its rapid pace. Apparently, several of the industries like Bear River foods, Back Country Store (etc) have moved to larger towns. That leaves the real estate industry and the tourist industry. Both industries react negatively to sprawl.

Midway sports some nice gothic revival architecture and a number of quaint Swiss style chalets. If they can stave off the reputation of being a sprawl city, the future for the area is bright.
