In the September 2008 edition of Powder Magazine a great write-up was done on the Big Cottonwood 7-Eleven.  I'm going to share what was dug up with you in case you missed picking that month's edition up (at 7-Eleven).  But one thing at a time.  Feel free to share your love of the place in the comments.
