Sunrise ski area and the White Mountains are a few hours drive away for outdoor hiking, fishing, skiing, picnicking, etc.

20 miles from the towns of Snowflake-Taylor with a natural foods market and grocery store chain. 40 miles to larger Show Low for greater shopping options, including a natural foods market with several grocery stores. Show Low also has fine dining, entertainment options, home improvement stores, and general shopping.

Our neighbors are wonderful, openminded people, many of whom have built their own homes and are retired and working professionals and craftspeople. Frequent activities include potlucks, work parties, dances, family and holiday celebrations. For such a quiet and remote area, possibilities for forming social ties abound. Folks are caring and supportive when neighbors are in need. This is a huge benefit of living here.
