Though it might seem a horse barn is rural, this one is only a few blocks from Main St.

Quiet Main St.

This view of downtown has only two individuals visible.  It was a fluke.  Now the sidewalks are filled with people at all hours.

Airport Acres

There is a section called Airport Acres.  There are three streets with homes that perhaps were built in the 1950s.  It is a desirable neighborhood.

Old Gate

Perhaps in another era this gate opened to a path that lead to the side door of a home.

New Platform

The view from the road to Mountain Lake hotel is spectacular.  Someone has build a parking lot and a viewing platform giving us a panoramic view.  There was no sign as to who built the platform yet.  I hope someone gets credit.
