Our High Country members offer a variety of attractions: from Native American arts & crafts to geocaching and fossil hunting to local farmers’ market and dutch-oven cooking. Take time. Venture off the blacktop highway and onto gravel roads. Rediscover the beauty and bounty of this scenic area.


Stop by Deadhorse Creek Market and enjoy scrumptious freshly picked garden vegetables and fruits. While you’re there; pick up one or our home-made pies; taste a sample of Ava’s jellies and jams made from our local wild plums, hand-gathered rose hips, choke cherries, wild grape and more. Deadhorse Creek Market  also offers local handmade gifts to take home and enjoy.
