LOGAN -- Logan Canyon has reopened following a big mess that included cheese floating in the Logan River.
A semi-truck driver northbound on Highway 89 about 13 miles up the canyon took a curve too fast. His truck rolled and part of the trailer went into the Logan River and lost 38,000 pounds of dairy products.
Bags of shredded cheddar cheese floated downriver. A bucket brigade of crews hauled out all the yogurt, cheese and butter that they could.
The accident happened before noon but the cleanup took all day and into the night.
The driver was headed to Wyoming. He had only minor injuries.
