If you're looking for the opposite of L.A., then I'd say this is a great place to visit.
Most of my daily routine takes place in and around the Allegheny Mts. and the river area. Hills, trees, valleys, creeks, streams.
Last week, I walked out the back door of my facility and looked up to see three, yes, three bald eagles circling above. Probably a mother with her yearlings.
Keep in mind, the area that I'm referring to is in the northwest corner of the state. Great fresh water fishing too. Here's a pic I took out my back door a few weeks ago.
Here's a morning shot of the river.
The next two pics are Spring time and we were hiking at a beaver dam, the first pic is the valley and the second is a tree that we found that the beaver had been working on.
The things that I've described, are everyday occurrences for me. If wildlife, fresh mountain air, foggy mornings and friendly folks are something that would interest you, then by all means, visit.
