“From Silicon Valley to Main Creek Valley is a soothing, peaceful transition. I came for the quiet restful walks in the woods and lazy canoe trips down the river… I stayed because of the sense of community. Many people here are involved in preserving and enhancing a quality of life we only dreamed of in big cities.”
