           HORSE HEAVEN

Above the Fog-below the Snow
This is country living at its best, literally. Tall pines and Magnificent Oaks are the local scenery. Wildlife flourishes here; Deer and Wild Turkeys roam free along with Jack Rabbits and "Mr. Pepe le'peue" le skunk. You can hear the Coyotes howling on a hot summer night as they race across the fields. A remarkable town park includes a swimming hole and a gentle creek where children can wade through ankle deep in the cooling water during the hot summer months. There are dozens of barbecue pits and picnic tables alongside the creek and throughout the grassy knolls dotted with swing-sets. My Grandkids love all the playground equipment. Several baseball and soccer fields are available, so you can watch little league on one field while seniors are practicing for their tournament in the next field and a third game might be going at the same time.
