Snowmobile

Most people don’t move to the Centennial Valley for the balmy weather. Living here is a challenge in the winter even today, so early settlers had to improvise. Children rode horses to school as recently as the 1930s. This “snowmobile” was used by a current local resident in the 1960s to get from his home to school. Today, there’s a school bus, but getting to the bus is still a challenge in a blizzard.
