Like all of the other streets in Salt Lake City with "West" and "East" designations, this street runs north-south. You will have to decide for yourself whether you like that. I am not going to tell you what to think.

The chainlink picture frames are camera holes for scenic shots — one for all of the tall people in the world, and one for all of the short people in the world. Too few!

Windsor Ontario grove of AILANTHUS ALTISSIMA amid plenty of impervious surface.
Dormant but come spring when their glorious leaves come out they'll be known as "ghetto palms."
