Providing a less congested lifestyle, this quiet rural town is a short drive into the country. A large, silver-colored sphere water tower stands high above a park and can be seen from a distance. Surrounding the city are rich, vibrant fields of tree groves, seed crops, onions, potatoes, corn, alfalfa, and sugar beets. A patchwork quilt of farmland carved into the landscape creates a colorful array of texture and design. Sheep and cattle dot the green pastures with occasional horses and haystacks.
