Got my hair cut tonight in the only beauty parlor in town run by a local, Mindy Euleg. I asked her if she was from here and not only is she from this area she is from Metropolis, the ghost town we went out to see! OK, Actually she, being in her late 20s early 30s, is not from the actual ghost town but one of the ranches in the area that used to be a part of Metropolis. Her grandfather emigrated from Germany and moved all the way out here to Metropolis, now part of Wells, to grow potatoes which he did for a while. The family still grows hay but now raises cattle.
This morning we drove back up into the Humbolts to do the Smith Lake trail. We made sure to wear red as the hunters are out, deer season opened up a week ago;)
