You are so LUCKY!!!!
We just got back from a 6 day trip out there, and every time I go I am in awe of how beautiful it is! And such great weather! Even with the extreme temperatures, we were pretty comfortable up in the mountains, and the lack of humidity was such a pleasant change from my home state.
The mountain driving is a little unnerving for me, but I am sure I could get used to it.
Anyway, I just had to post and say what a lovely home you have, and I hope we will visit it often!
Less rhetoric, more cowbell!
