Located at the northern end of Highway 35 is the town of Huntsville. It was there, in 1968, that I had the pleasure of seeing Sly and the Family Stone perform, which, of course, is a most memorable occasion. The town boasts the Hidden Valley Ski Resort, which was the venue for Sly’s band.
The scene above is indicative of the pervasive silence which reigns once the summer ends. No more boats and Sea-Do’s, no more throngs with sandals and cameras… just lovers and locals.
