This Summer enjoy a mountainous cool climate nurtured by an annual rainfall suitable to feed three mountain streams and keep the surrounding meadows and forests in spectacular hues of green. Animal life thrives in these mountains; and while they may stay out of sight, it is great to know they are here in abundant numbers in a bountiful environment; then again, you might have a sighting of some of this very special wildlife!
