Every year the town is flooded with genuine hippie folks who come to pick the plump huckleberries, or delicious varieties of all kinds of mushrooms. These things are sold to the local yuppies who, interestingly, are too lazy and inadequate to go out in the woods and pick their own damn items, and so totally rely on the "hippie scum" to keep things running.
All in all a great place to live, if you stay away from the Mt. Adams Baptist Church. People there will label you a drug-dealer before you realize what's happened, and then it becomes really hard to make friends. Especially if you're from California.
