I live in Sisters Oregon just east of three sisters wilderness and the three sisters volcanoes. Sisters is officially an 1890s town with board walk etc. We have the state champion girls volley ball and socker teams and champion riding team. This is horse country and kids grow up shoveling manure and driving tractors.

I am an avid backpacker and ski camper. My house is on the road up to the snow parks by the wilderness.
