Where is it?
It was described to me so. This is the place where not too Brits or Irish go yet. It’s where California was 25 years ago. This is where you go to see America as it was. Very neighbourly. A place to explore at your own pace. It has deserts and year round snow-topped mountains where can ski 12 months of the year at the high levels, 363 miles of world class beaches and untouched wilderness. Golfing, fishing and skiing, rafting and biking are just some of the pastimes and sports to be enjoyed. More than anything it’s the outdoors that is to be enjoyed and marvelled at.
