SimCoug: Indeed, and that teaser could be said it's outdated, I further improved the area of Granite Creek in the last few days.
ggamgus: Thank you, hope you like it!
k50: Thanks for the comment, I always liked your CJ's, so I hope you also like mine.
Jacob Guajardo: Well, you can stop waiting now, it's here!
NOTE: There was an unexpected turn of events for me IRL, so I had to delay the entry for today. Don't worry, I will try and keep up the next updates in time.
Howdy! We are arriving to the town of Granite Creek, but since there is so much to see, the visit will be cut throughout two days. That's right folks, but let's get on to it.
Look! There is an orange tree orchard there!
Granite Creek is one of the main farming communities in the Grand Valley, with it's mere 1,200 inhabitants, it's a small town indeed, but that doesn't mean that this is no interesting place to see. There's plenty to see in the neighboring area.
Granite Creek was founded in the late 19th century, as a farming town half a mile away, a small creek provided with the water needed for the fields. Ever since founding, the town has been growing steadily. Being less than four hours from Storm City by train and six by car, the town boasts an economy centered at exporting the crops in the area there, mainly, though some other goods are distributed regionally.
The train station and most of the commercial buildings are located in the center of the down, at great relief because the Inn where we are staying is just across the street.
Below you can see the houses of the city. Rural homes and cottages, with some modern homes dotting around. Most of the newer houses are owned as summer houses, as this town is also a popular touristic destination for the people of Storm City.
Want to see the fields, I hear you say? Well, let's see them now!
Hey there are some cows there!
Those are lots of oranges and corn, don't you think?
And here you have an overview of the whole town.
Whoa... that was tiring. Look! It's already dark and we didn't notice!
Time goes fast when you are busy, let's return to the Inn.
Sleep nicely, because next time we go camping! We will visit the forests north of Granite Creek in the Granite Heights National Park.
See until next time!
