(Amalga when I woke up after sleeping there one night.)

Amalga is a cute little farm town, I enjoyed my stay there one weekend. I actually got my Jeep stuck in a ditch one night late while pulling over to find a geocache and was saved by a nice local with a tractor. I slept under the stars that night on a friends driveway and woke up the next morning to a beautiful foggy farmland. Creeks and fields as far as the eye can see, lots of fences too.

Amalga is easy to miss, it is between Smithfield and Newton if you know Cache County at all. Wikipedia says the population is 448, seems a little high to me. (ha ha) The best thing in town is the cheese factory, they make AMAZING cheese.
