    This was the second time, but still great again. It is a deer does not fear the human world intrude into them, such as mountains. Summit, pretty tight places, but nowhere else everything beautifully, totally sated. Is a space of healing say truly paradise on Earth. Everywhere there is water from a river or mountain, comfy and in the water. It is recommended to climb in a climbing Mountain shoes, wet rocks and trees, so slippery, firm.
