I Have Seen Flying Squirrels Flit From One Treetoop To Another. I Have Listened To The Calls Of Nightjars. Owls And Other Birds Who Live By Night; The Small Of Pines, The Sound Of Birds, The Singing Of Hill People, The Sound Of A River Flowing Throught a Valley- These Are Some Of The Pleasant Things That Greet You Once You Once You Are In The mountains.
