  • I was amazed with the scenery and the way the mountains just made my mouth drop in awe and wonder.  I have began hiking as a hobby lately after having a major back surgery in January 2010.  Now after coming there I have a new goal to hike up MacRae Peak so we will be coming back in a few months  and hopefully bring more people with us.  We really enjoyed the natural habitat and the bears. You people really know how to entertain us. The staff was very very and a special thanks to Jill on top of the Mountain at the Swinging Bridge for explaining the points and mountains to us.  She is to be my tour guide when I come back !
