We love Ghost Mtn. This trip we are staying in a cabin. It is peaceful and we have a beautiful view. So much work has been done since our visit last June. The roads are done or almost done. Yea! So much better. Thanks to everyone's hard work after the storm the other night. Wow! What a mess. But as usual Tim, Denise and staff were immediately working on clean up and fixing the damage. Thank you for all you do.read more
