Weber County, Utah

Weber County is a county in the U. S. state of Utah. As of the 2010 census, the population was 231,236, its county seat and largest city is the home of Weber State University. The county was named for the Weber River. Weber County is part of the Ogden-Clearfield, UT Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the Salt Lake City-Provo-Orem, UT Combined Statistical Area; the Weber Valley was visited by many trappers seeking muskrats along its streams. One of the first on record reached the area in 1824, he reported. Peter Skene Ogden passed through in 1826, he traded near present-day North Ogden. John C. Frémont explored the Weber Valley in 1843, made maps of the area; the Fremont reports encouraged readers to seek their fortunes in the western frontier. Miles Goodyear was a fur trapper who constructed a way station on the Weber River in 1845. In 1847 he sold it to incoming Mormon pioneers. James Brown made the purchase, changed the name of the site to Brownsville. After the Mormon pioneers began filling out into the future state of Utah, the fledgling government began a system of government.

On January 31, 1850 the legislature provided for the creation of six counties to cover the area, named in this order: Weber Great Salt Lake Utah San Pete Tuilla Little Salt LakeThe county boundaries were better-defined by the 1852 Utah Territory legislature. The borders were adjusted by subsequents acts in 1855, in 1856, in 1862; the creation of Nevada Territory in 1862 administratively reduced the county's territory by a significant degree, since its 1852 description had it running to the Sierra Nevada mountains in central California. A final adjustment in 1880 concerning the various lands in the Great Salt Lake area brought the county's borders to their present configuration; as of the 1852 description, the original Weber County stretched from California in the west, to the Oregon boundary on the north, to a point in middle Davis County in the south. As Nevada and the State of Utah evolved, Weber County was trimmed so that it now occupies a stretch of the Wasatch Front, part of the eastern shores of Great Salt Lake, much of the rugged Wasatch Mountains.

The county extends from high in the Wasatch Range in the east into a portion of the Great Salt Lake to the west. The Weber and Ogden rivers and their tributaries run through its valleys; the Weber County Surveyor's office divides the county into two regions, the "Lower Valley" and the "Upper Valley", divided by the ridge of the Wasatch front range south through the county. Lower Valley, adjacent to the Lake, is the county's more populous part; the Upper Valley consists of the Ogden Valley, the watershed of the Ogden River. The county's highest elevation is Willard Peak in the Wasatch Mountains, at 9,763' ASL; the county has an area of 659 square miles, of which 576 square miles is land and 83 square miles is water. It is the second-smallest county in Utah by land third-smallest by total area.

Frogner stadion

Frogner stadion is a sports stadium in Oslo, which has artificial ice in the winter for speed skating and bandy. The artificial grass is used in the summertime for soccer and American football, it is located close to the Frogner Park, between Majorstuen. One match, Norway-Belarus, was played here at the 2013 Bandy World Championship, it opened in 1901, was built by the speed skating club Kristiania Skøiteklub. In 1914, the stadium was moved to its current position, due to the 1914 Jubilee Exhibition. At the inaugural race in 1914, two speed skating world records were set by Oscar Mathisen, in 500 m and 1,500 m. In 1928, Oslo Municipality took over responsibility for the stadium. Frogner stadion was one of the most important ice skating venues in Norway until 1940. A long series of championships were held at Frogner stadion, both in figure skating and in speed skating. A total of 23 speed skating world records have been set at the stadium. Seventeen of the records from Frogner are listed among the official ISU world records in speed skating.
