Kudos to community

In today's world, where more time is spent complaining about things and focusing on the negative, I decided that I should let you know that we just returned to Oregon from a trip to the Ketchum/Sun Valley

area and we had an outstanding visit.

My wife Gale, myself and four other adult friends visited your community for four days with the primary purpose of attending the Carole King and James Taylor concert at River Run. As expected, it was an incredible event and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially as we enjoyed their music in such an intimate venue.

In addition, we roamed your town shopping (various locations including the arts show), dining at various locations (Riccabona's for Saturday dinner, Grumpy's for the World Cup final, Sun Valley

Resort for Sunday dinner), and in doing so we traveled exclusively on your public transportation system Mountain Rides.

This brings me to the purpose of my letter. We found the system to be very efficient, clean, on time, and we should note that all of the drivers we came into contact with were quite pleasant and very helpful in answering our questions and assisting us in getting to our various destinations. Kudos to Mountain Rides and your community for supporting such a nice service for the people of the valley as well as for those visiting.

As I stated previously, we had a wonderful time and certainly plan to return sometime in our future.
