A location to die for. Water bursting in and out and a breattaking scenery, with alpine mountains and wonderful colors. Rich and plentiful fishing for the eager one.

Amazing to watch the swirling waters. A boat ride is a nice albeit a scary thing to do. Beautiful places to picnic and watch the waters.
