Though the town areas may be overrun by tourist at times, the locals simply step out their back doors for all the rest and relaxation Nature can offer. If the view isn't of the lake surrounded by snow capped mountians it is this, trees at every turn of the head.
What I can't share with you are the sounds of tree limbs and leaves rustling in the wind. Animals scampering about, crunching a ground layer of twigs and decomposing vegetation. Nor can I share the harmonious echo of various birds communicating with each other from tree to tree.
I think it is this element that makes everyone living here so friendly and easy going.
