And as is true at higher evaluations “If you don’t like the weather wait a moment and it’ll change”
Throughout the Week! Jeep tours, shops and restaurants open, fishing along the river, town ponds and surrounding areas, nature trail and other hiking or mountain biking trails, gold panning, Zumba and other classes offered, open recreation at the Conference Center, library with historical information.
