We are so fortunate to live in such a wonderful place surrounded by friendly people and an ever changing landscape. No wonder so many people want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the "big city" life and escape to these mountains. If its just for a getaway or a permanent move - we don't blame you one bit. We did it too - and have never regretted it!
