I live in a bit of the country that has no mountains at all – plenty of other geological wonders but the odd steep hill is as mountainous as it gets.

The hotel below… fabulous, huh? It’s not where we stayed but I like to believe if we had it would have been exactly like the ‘Great Northern Hotel’ in Twin Peaks. It’s called the ‘Swallow Falls Hotel’, which is a big clue to the deafening roar that fills the air…
