Reviews San Joaquin Valley

Vickie Goudreau
Level 18     2 Trophy    Viaggia: Couple, Friends, Family
Overall rating 8
Overall Guide : Been here 10 years, notice a poor 'self esteem' among valley residents, degrading talk, complaining about problems, even whining, lack of optimism and positive focus on problem solving and calling out or naming the good and the beautiful in our... more valley. This must change. Words are powerful and how we think determines our actions, ie; how we care for our communities, encourage our kids to build a life here, etc.
Not to be missed Yosemite , Huntington Lake Regatta , China Peak Ski Resort
