Come and Enjoy
When you come visit, you will be walking and riding in the footsteps of a very diverse group of people who have been in our valleys and on our mountains for the last 12,000 years. When I first bought our Model A Ford, I was worried that it wouldnít pull the grade from town to the cabin (750 feet elevation). One day, while searching some old files, I found a 1934 photo of a 4-H Club at Big Flat (10,400 feet elevation) and as you can see, they got there in Model A Fords. In my case, I am riding in the narrow tire tracks of old Fords that have been reduced to flecks of rust.
