Favorite "spots" in the city
« on: May 27, 2018, 09:59:27 AM »
Wat are some of your favorite small spots in the city? Theres a lot to mention but Ill start...

I love the pathway leading down to and around the knifeshop at Christmastime. Just somethin about it lit up at night, and its never crowded.

Another favorite spot of mine is standing by the ribhouse watching the LR go by.
Small wonder our lives have so little of God in them, when we come in touch with so little that God has made.

Just outside of the gift shop at Outlaw Run.  Usually not that crowded and they've got Western movie themes playing on the loud speakers.  I love to browse around and read the signage and look at the stagecoach.  Great theming!

I like the quiet area between the leather shop and mountain outfitters. Shady and uncrowded. A lot of trees. It is just a nice quiet area away from the hustle of the park.

the homestead, either sitting on the porch with the Pickers, or in the back watching the animals.  I love to hide and relax back there.

My son's would be on the cooking school's back patio deck in one of the rockers.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

I always like to sit on the second level behind Lumbercamp Burgers and watch the waterfall. 2nd place is inside the ice cream parlor by one of the windows... Air-conditioning and ice cream, what a deal!

I enjoy sitting at Dockside Grill sometimes and just enjoy the view of the lake and people watching.  And I second the appreciation of the 2nd level of Lumbercamp Burgers overlooking the waterfall.  Can sometimes catch a nice breeze in the shade and the view is great.

Smelling the fresh baked goods from the bakery when I first walk into the park. I also enjoy sitting on the back patio of the culinary school. Another favorite is inside Wilderness Church looking out the back window.

I loved to stand at the knife maker and watch Ray hammer out a blade.  Gone WAY too soon.

Sitting on the front porch of the cabin listening to the Homestead Pickers.

The little stream on the left side of the square heading down towards the leather - knife making shops. It is where i asked my wife to marry me. But the 1 that reminds me most of when i was a kid, is the back of the bathrooms by the old time photos. It was, & still is fun to watch the train come around the corner. And of course, when i was a teenager, i would hide out back there & smoke cigarettes.. Shame on me! Thank Heaven it was the 80s!!  :o

Its a great spot, almost put it myself.
I just wish their burgers were as good as they are at the wagon works.
Small wonder our lives have so little of God in them, when we come in touch with so little that God has made.

Yes the view out the back of the church isnt as good as it once was but that church is all great.

Too many good spots!
