Favorite thing: Go visit the glacier and surrounding hills.
Fondest memory: The cab driver named Jerry who took me to see the glacier. It was a quiet afternoon tourist-wise (it was the beginning of March after all)so he took the rest of the day off and showed me a great hiking trail up the mountain at the back of town.
