Description

Upon the peak of this trail sits a local landmark placed as a reminder to all townsfolk of our local history. In 2009, April 9th, our town was hit by a tornado. Three citizens lost their lives, over a hundred homes were destroyed, and thousands of trees were lost. In the midst of tragedy, we helped one another rebuild and heal. This landmark reminds us of who we are, what we can achieve, and to be thankful for the many blessings we share.

Flora & Fauna

Mourning Doves.
No Yeti.
