That's how impressed I was. And my kids had a great time. Hard to beat. They are walking the walk of environmental protection. Very heartening, even as you cringe to see what humans have done.

Though, we didn't want to disturb the natural beauty, yet observing it from a very close proximity was a fantastic experience. Bears need a special mention here. Thanks to sos for their noble effort
