I went to college here, moved away and later came back because I missed my many friends. It is beautiful, in a valley, surrounded by mountains

There are many neighborhood parks and a good river for fishing. Ski slopes are within a half hour's drive and there are several great places for cross country skiing.

]

There are nice cultural activities with a community theater, an arts center, and concerts and plays at the local college. Most of all the people are friendly and you can get to know each other.
