Layton Utah Temple

Layton Utah

Joe: Having spent considerable time in this area over the last few years, most people might not know just how gangbusters the communities between Salt Lake and Ogden are expanding. Perhaps calling upon the westward-bound pioneers of old, in Davis County if there’s land west ho! toward the Great Salt Lake, you can rest assured there will be Craftsman style McMansions as far as the eye can see. In other words, that’s a lot of “Live, Laugh, Love” vinyl lettering and paintings of George Washington at Valley Forge to sell to all those homes. Maybe we should predict a new Deseret Book in this area as well.

Geoff: Uh, Joe, a cursory Google search has told me that there is a Deseret Book right on Main Street, near the Walmart Supercenter, Home Depot, and Deseret Industries. Suburban living at its finest. All you need is a Kneader’s and you’ve got a stew, baby.

Alright, we’ve talked Layton a lot in the past. The basic explanation is that this region has more stakes per temple than Utah county, which boast four temples compared to the presence of two (Bountiful and Ogden) across this stretch of Wasatchia. Quit playing to the Provoites, yo.
