Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 223 - Happy New Year!
After a bit windy and cold yet completely rewarding snowshoe up Ogden's classic Indian Trail, we convened in the Tan Van for our last podcast of 2015. Looking both over the past and into the future, we invited some of our favorite guests, Shane and Sara from Visit Ogden, and Leia Larsen, Environmental Reporter with the Standard Examiner. Events and News segments included along with some New Year's love!
Thank you for spending 2015 with OOA and the Banyan Collective! We love our listeners and are working to make 2016 our best year ever! Happy New Year!
After a brisk snowshoe up Indian Trail from the 22nd Street Trailhead, we chatted with Shane and Sara from Visit Ogden about Ogden's best of 2015 and what our beloved mountain town can look forward to in this next year.
INTERVIEW – Visit Ogden's Shane Osguthorpe & Sara Toliver
