A Christmas Story
Hats, gloves and boots are out and ready for snowball fights and sledding adventures. But with dry weather making that impossible, locals can at least put them to good use traipsing through the forest for the time-honored holiday ritual of tree hunting. Folks around town are getting out their tinsel, ornaments and, more importantly, saws and Forest Service permits, to make a day hiking for the perfect specimen to light up their holidays. And even if it looks a little like the Charlie Brown Christmas tree, the memories of time spent with family and friends will warm the heart forever.
