Esthetician Karlene Wishloff helps her patrons feel even younger with exfoliating facials, gentle microdermabrasions, waxing, and anti-aging light therapy. Rather than using harmful substances such as petroleum products, mineral oils, and well-aged Windex, the seasoned skin expert removes dead skin cells and reduces hyperpigmentation with plant-based products, fruit extracts, and non-invasive applications of concentrated light.
Spread across 52 acres of varied pastureland, Rosse Posse Acres shepherds 70 head of elk on a working ranch with a vast natural habitat and plenty of orchard grass hay for meals. A guided tour takes guests through the ranch, beginning with an educational lecture in the barn where they can learn about antlers and the difference between a bull's and cow's ivory teeth. Tours then travel through the handling facility for a view of the hydraulic squeeze chute and handling pens before a stop in the pasture for a close-up look at the elk to see if their antlers are really made of marshmallows.
Though guests are not allowed to touch the elk, they can release their urge to pet at an on-site petting zoo, where smaller animals such as Fallow deer, pygmy goats, miniature donkeys, and a wallaby named Tucker are eager to make friends. In addition to ranch tours, Rosse Posse sells wapiti roasts, tenderloins, and strip steaks by the pound, when available. The meat is processed at Buxton Meat in Sandy, OR under USDA inspection.
The crew members at NW Mobile Car Detail & Canby Auto Detail pamper cars, boats, and RVs with thorough interior and exterior detailing services performed at the shop or on location. Cleansed by hand, vehicle parts including tires, seats, and windows gleam when touched up by the staff. Crew members are also certified to assist in helicopter and aircraft detailing, ready to remove smudges of smoggy particulate or the adhesive that keeps the clouds attached to the sky. At the end of any land-based vehicle's visit, the crew can shuttle the car back to the safety of its owner’s house.
In Aurora, visitors can find antiques that are as old as the town itself. Founded back in 1856, Aurora has been lauded as one of the best destinations in the U.S. for antiquing, and many of the historic buildings are now occupied by locally-owned businesses including Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage, Time After Time, White Rabbit Bakery, and Aurora Antiques. In addition to antiques, the town is home to a number of artisanal wineries, candy shops, and galleries where artists showcase their hand-made wares.
