    I can vouch for Saide’s comments about this beautiful landscape. I was there last year with a birding group from CC in a mentoring role. Terrible weather but it mattered little. We walked and walked also and would have kept going if time allowed. A magical place!

    Lovely photo! Give this a panorama look and you may have a sense of how breath-taking this property is to behold. And we walked and walked and listened to the landscape stories. So really looking forward to this next event!
