Cottonwood held its annual community-wide yard sales events Saturday, May 21. Hailey and I traveled to several sales and managed to stay out of the rain. Our friends at The Hangout, Ron and Debbie, made us a nice lunch and then I headed to Kamiah for some of the ISBA Bluegrass Festival. That event, held at the KOA Campground/Lewis Clark Resort on U.S. Highway 12 was host to the event. The campground has made a lot of changes and is very nice — especially a new playground area for the kids.
