Back in the early 20's the U.S. was obsessed with baseball, and that included this little mountain town.The area pictured below, now covered with cabins, was at that time covered with baseball diamonds. Notice that the trees there are not as large as the ones in the distance. It was called the Ball Flats. Mainly because there were very few flat areas in this town. Today, if you live there, you don't say I live in Ball Flats, you sat you live ON the Ball Flats.
Notice the haze in the air? That is smoke actually making it's way all the way from California, where there are hundreds of fires from the continuing drought.
