As new homeowners (or new parents), many of us look forward to participating in those annual holiday traditions - decorating for Christmas, passing out candy at Halloween, etc. When we bought our first house in Conifer, we were so excited to welcome Trick or Treaters to our door that we rushed to Costco to buy the giant bag of candy to be sure we'd have enough. We decorated our house, made sure our porch light was turned on, and sat in eager anticipation of little voices yelling "Trick or Treat!"
That first Halloween, we quickly realized things are done a little differently here from where we'd grown up when we had not a single goblin, ghost, Spiderman, or princess warrior grace our door. With houses spaced out further, and a lack of streetlights, going door-to-door in the neighborhood isn't really an option for kids in the mountains. After polishing off that giant bowl of candy ourselves (ouch), we discovered the fabulous world of Trunk or Treats at local schools, activities at libraries, and Trick or Treating at area businesses!
This week on Exploring 285 we visited Scooter's Smokehouse & Grill to see their new remodeled restaurant and eat some delicious bbq! Next time you are in Conifer check them out! https://m.facebook.com/scooterssmokehousebbq/

If you're reading this post, you're probably on it right now. MyMountainTown.com. Meet our beloved Sharon Trilk, she's the face behind My Mountain Town, the leading news and forum website for the foothills. 🏔
Sharon is über-passionate about our local mountain towns and is constantly striving to strengthen the fabric of our community. Learn about her story and how she came to take over My Mountain Town back in 2011 as well as what MMT has to offer.
"Our goal is to connect everyone in the community—the businesses, the non-profits, the community members… because we all help each other succeed and thrive. But it takes more than just being online. You have to get out in your community. So I'm going to challenge everyone. Pick a favorite non-profit in the area and find one you love, and just volunteer for an hour or two a month or an hour a two a week. Whatever you have time for. When we all pitch in and get to know each other, we make it the place to live that it is. It's beautiful; this is the place to be. This is our heart."Sharon Trilk, Owner of My Mountain Town
