Ogden Valley Roots & Blues Festival 2016

Last year I attended my first Ogden Valley Roots and Blues Festival. I had such a blast with my kiddos up there, so when it rolled into town this last weekend I jumped at the chance to attend.

Directions and GPS coordinates are closely guarded by the few adventurers that have made the voyage and crossed the borders, making it nearly impossible to find. Embarking on the mysterious trek to the two-square acre micro-nation takes great patience, a...
