This place is MUST to see. Especially if you have kids you want to be environmental concerned and ecology friendly in a future. It shows and reminds how fragile our eco-system is, how easy to destroy it.

If you're into nature this is an interesting place to visit. Many trails to ponds and you can walk all the way to the Ruby Lake Restaurant.
