The Edge of the World
Like our profile says we live in Eagle Mountain, UT. However, most people have decided to call it, "The Edge of the World." For those of you who don't know where Eagle Mountain is, it is located in the hills west of Utah Lake. If you are thinking that is where Lehi is, you haven't gone west enough. You know you're in the right place when you can take your 4-wheeler out of your garage, go down the street and run into the mountain trails. It's our little piece of heaven. Not only do we have some the best neighbors in the world, we can still see stars and constellations at night. However, living on the Edge of the World does have it's drawbacks. We have at least an extra 30 minutes to add on to any drive we have to make. We don't have many modern conveniences so yep, another nice long drive to the grocery store for a simple gallon of milk. Thank goodness our Honda gets good gas milage. Justine and I both work up in Salt Lake City so we feel like we live in LA because it takes us around an hour to get to work. It's a good thing that I like to drive. We're still in the development stages out here and that makes things a bit difficult. We only have single lane roads everywhere we go, so when that person who is too busy doing whatever it is that's more important than driving, we get stuck behind that person. NO FUN!! So because we have chosen this Edge of Map to live on we felt that it would be the perfect title to our blog.
