Stay in our motels or cabins or camp at various camp sites throughout the county. Bring your camera. The lakes, streams, forests, wildlife and pristine views are a photographer?s paradise. Even when you prepare to retire for the night, look at the sky. It will be filled with brilliant, glittering stars. You might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
