We stayed overnight at a tiny Airbnb apartment complete with tiny shower, fireplace, elephant wallpaper and mini porch. Little Switzerland Inn was very close and had a restaurant and mountain view. We were disappointed that there were no Swiss foods or real connections with Switzerland. We learned that Emerald Village was nearby, an authentic historic emerald mine.

I was hoping for less wind at Julian Price Lake.
