    Hi Martin,

    Thank you for your letter. Let us start by saying we had the most amazing
    time at Fourpeaks. You've done a wonderful thing by preserving the land as
    it was 100 years ago. And thank you so much for the upgrade--Sugar Camp was
    just perfect for us!

    We brought books and games with us and then realized we didn't need them to
    be entertained. We spent most of the time just relaxing by the fire,
    sleeping, cooking and hiking. We baked the biscuits and I have to say they
    came out great. We didn't get to hike as much as we would've liked, though,
    so we'll definitively be back to do Rattlesnake and the shorter trails,
    probably in winter. The little hiking we did was unbelievable --The colors
    were amazing and the view from The Lookout was breathtaking. We loved the
    little trails and the surprises along them, from the picnic tables to the
    old jeep. George was also a lot of fun to have around. He even took us all
    the way up to Wolf's Nest when we couldn't find the trail !

    We really don't have any complaints as everything was so much better than we
    had expected. The website does not do justice to the beauty and peace of
    Fourpeaks. After living in the city for so long, you forget the wonders of
    Nature. I remember looking up our first night at Sugar and being amazed at
    the brightness of the sky. The second day, we found a sky map among your
    books at the cabin and spent two hours on Sunday night trying to figure out
    the constellations (turns out we're not very good at it, but it was great
    fun anyway).

    We were hoping for some rain and we got it! It was beautiful. The sounds on
    the roof, the smell of wet grass, the geese flying overhead... It was so
    peaceful.

    Our only regret was having to leave so early. Next time we plan on staying
    at least five or six days.

    Thank you so much for everything. You were a great host.

    Diana & Guillermo
    PS. We're only sending a few pics because they're rather large. Please let
    us know if the size is ok or if it's better to make them a little smaller
    (we don't want to take your whole mailbox) and we'll email you a lot more.
    Thanks!

    Diana and Guillermo,

    Thanks for your wonderful pictures. They are not only excellent quality
    but they show your sense of enjoyment at being together by yourselves with
    just natural things and nothing to do for a few days but get around and
    enjoy--or just rest!

    Yes. I'd would really like to have LOTS MORE. The ones you sent (2048x1536
    pixels) are good size for printing but too big for the webpage. I use
    640x480 for the webpage. So if you can get them to that size it would be
    perfect.

    I love the one of you two looking out at the view. More like that with
    both or just one of you at least would be nice. Also, ANY INTERIOR SHOTS,
    particularly showing activities like coooking, looking at the skymap, the
    fireplace (chair blocked the fire in the one you sent), bed, kitchen, etc
    etc Also George if you got one of him. Thanks in advance for your effort
    in sending more! (Don't worry about my mailbox, but you could split them
    up in a few emails.)

    I'm glad you found the skymap. This season I'm adding lots of books to all
    the camps, as reading especially unfamiliar nature stuff is always a good
    camp activity.

    Best wishes to you both. I hope to see you again soon.

    Martin (and George)

    Thank you, Martin. We really did enjoy ourselves.

    One thing we noticed: we usually look serious and uncomfortable in pictures
    (neither of us is particularly photogenic), but once we came home and
    printed the pics from Fourpeaks, we realized we're smiling in most of them.
    Fourpeaks is a magical place !

    Here are five more pics. I reduced them to half the size of the originals.
    Let me know if they're still too big. We took tons of pictures! I'll keep
    sending them in future emails so you can pick the ones you like.

    Thanks so much for everything.

    Diana & Guillermo
