And Disneyland is near San Diego!
It all depends on one's perspective.
Here's what Wikipedia says:
"The Logan River rises in the Bear River Mountains in Idaho and flows 53.7 miles south, then southwest through Logan Canyon and the Wasatch-Cache National Forest to the city of Logan, Utah, in the Cache Valley.
"In this valley, it joins the Little Bear River a few miles west of Logan and about 5 miles (8 km) south of where the Little Bear River joins the Bear River."
If you were on foot, the Bear River and the Logan River would not be considered to be close to each other.
And this dispute arose because you said, and then chose to defend said statement:
"That drive down Logan canyon from Garden City into Logan scared the bejeepers out of me driving there in 2016. Those roadways were blasted out of rock in the mountainside/canyon. It was such a winding narrow canyon road with the Bear River running next to it on either side depending which way the road curved, that it seemed to go on forever."
You were driving next to the Logan River. You say some "locals" told you they called it the Bear River. And so you're back to contributing to your legend. Here's a joke: I'm surprised you didn't tell us that a dead relative appeared to you and told you that it is, indeed, the Bear River.
And when you look on Google Earth, it's quite clear that the river you were driving next to, down Hwy 89, is the Logan River. There is nothing in the canyon along Hwy 89 that would allow the river to be referenced as anything other than the Logan River.
The Logan River is a tributary waterway, meaning that it ends where it joins a bigger waterway, in this case, the Little Bear River, which itself is a tributary of the Bear River. Each is a separate entity until it is subsumed by the larger waterway.
The Bear River and the Logan River are two distinctly different waterways and whoever the 'locals' were with whom you chatter, they were simply wrong. Maybe they were pulling your leg?
Here are the geographical facts, not that facts ever were a burden to you:
Country: United States
States: Utah, Idaho
Counties Cache County, Utah, Franklin County, Idaho
⁃ location east of Preston, Franklin County, Idaho
⁃ coordinates 42°02′07″N 111°35′58″W
⁃ elevation 8,096 ft (2,468 m)
Little Bear River
⁃ location west of Logan, Cache County, Utah
⁃ coordinates 41°44′29″N 111°57′17″W
⁃ elevation 4,413 ft (1,345 m)
Length 54 mi (87 km)
These are simple facts. You see where the river originates, at 8,096 feet above sea level, and it flows 54 miles, down the canyon, until it comes out onto the plain, meanders around and then joins the Little Bear River, at a level of 4,413 feet above sea level. For those 54 miles, it is the Logan River. And only the Logan River.
This is pretty basic stuff!
