Wilbur Hobbs is a great host, showing us how he signs his works and creates his work. Also has knowledge of the area and what and where to see and do. Fun to talk with, and very interesting stories.

This little gift shop had lots of things to take home to remember your trip to the land of friendly people. The gentleman behind the counter was very adamant about having each person signing the guest book! He did it in a very friendly way.

Fabulous jams, wonderful hand knit goods, jewelry, souvenirs, and other crafts. Friendly staff and, perhaps most important when touring with a large group, clean and proper bathrooms!
