    [FONT=tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Where is Beryl?[/FONT]
    [FONT=tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif]More importantly, where are we?[/FONT]

    • [FONT=trebuchet ms,geneva]Beryl is an old railroad stop about 7 miles north of us... just a ghost town now.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=trebuchet ms,geneva]Beryl Junction is the intersection of UT Hwys 56 and 18, about 7 miles south of us. There's an elementary school, a community center, a restaurant, and one of the busiest tire stores in southern Utah.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=trebuchet ms,geneva]We're about 20 miles from the Nevada border, with Caliente being our closest Farmer's Market (about 65 miles one way.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=trebuchet ms,geneva]Our nearest town is 17 miles away in the next county. That's Enterprise, which is kind of the "valley hub". There's a grocery store, a True Value Hardware store, a convenience store, a restaurant, the requisite LDS church, and both an elementary and high school.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=trebuchet ms,geneva]Over the mountains to the east of us (47 miles) is Cedar City. That's where we go for some health care, the nearest Wal-Mart and Home Depot, as well as Cal Ranch and IFA.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=trebuchet ms,geneva]The "big city" of the south is St. George, 57 miles to the south. We get there twice a month on the "Senior Bus". Bev (one of my roomies) is the bus driver, and "Mom" and I are both old enough to ride it. Sure beats using our gas to get to St. George.[/FONT]
    [FONT=trebuchet ms,geneva]That's where we have even more medical services, and more shopping choices. We just go nuts at Costco, Lowe's, and an even larger Wal-Mart. Oh, can't forget about the "Smith's" store.[/FONT]

    Here's the weather at our farm!
