Every year, there is Old Time Christmas. People from all over town get together and sell their things. You see some beautiful things there, like beautiful necklaces. I bought one for a friend one year for a really low price. She still wears it every day.

Most people have pets, and I love that. I love animals. They tend to either live here for the end of their lives, after retirement, or stay in the area their whole life.
There are a lot of small, beautiful homes with great view of the Presidential mountains.
