Dear Donna & John,
How can I tell you what a wonderful and healing time I had in
the Doris Mine of your truly golden mine?! It was so serene and so beautiful
that my whole
mind and body fells better today. I enjoyed every single minute,
every single bite, every single laugh, every single bump over the ice on
the way to Inter-Laken.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Dear John & Donna,
Words cannot begin to thank you for our wonderful stay at Ores & Mine!....
We wish we were sitting on the front porch gazing at Twin Lakes, playing "fetch the rock"
with Bourbon, or laughing in the hot tub right now! Hopefully we can come again.....
