    Are you freaking out to be in the midst of commerce and PEOPLE?

    • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

      Really. This is the most civilization I think he’s seen in a week at least? Hope you stocked up real good there Matt. And hope Scott gave you some good tips on some place to eat.

  2. Candice in Alabama says:

    Wow – at least it’s not another ghost town! Civilization!

    • Candice in Alabama says:

      Look at the storefronts! Makes me think of small town Elba, Alabama, except their stores surround the courthouse square.

      • Candice in Alabama says:

        Mountains are beautiful (Again!).

        • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

          Aren’t they though?!? Love how it’s just there at the end of town by what this picture looks like. Amazing little place. Reminds me of some little towns around here but some have more traffic along with the historic stores/charm.

  3. CP in MI says:

    I love small towns like this. We explore them in Northern Michigan whenever we can.

  8. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Beautiful quaint little town and looks so clean! Big Scott you must be cleaning more than the side of the road! ha ha. No wonder you want to do your part to keep it clean. It’s gorgeous! Something to be very proud of indeed.

  9. MN Roxanne says:

    What a great main street and mountain backdrop…

  11. Jeff in Joisy says:

    all this reminds me of a man known as Big John Wallace. Harry Chapin Memory.

  12. Julie in Cincinnati says:

    I love this picture! Small town with a mountain in the background. This must be an awesome place to live. It kinda reminds me of the town in Northern Exposure (anyone remember that show?).

  13. Janine says:

    Wallace is adorable! I must visit.

  14. Jim in AR via MN says:

    What a great picture…small town, clean and welcoming…the only thing I would like to see…a festival or a parade right down the main street…when we travel I love to in a serendipitous way drive into small towns and find some celebration going on…arts, crafts, food, etc…we have had this happen many times during family vacations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa…etc…

    But I know it is not only the Midwest that is full of summer celebrations…right in Wallace, ID, there must be a few…and the town looks like a perfect place for one…

    • Big Scott says:

    People!! After all the ghost town, empty mines, and rocky roads you have stumbled upon civilization again! I hope you enjoyed a nice meal in a restaurant and found some friendly folks to chat with during your stay!

    Beautiful Pic, probably the best one yet. I LOVE small towns that look like this. Although I have never been to one. Would love to though. I always like seeing small towns in the movies too!
