Shangri-La: An imaginary paradise on earth; utopia. Likened to the biblical Garden of Eden, an earthly paradise where nature’s bounty reigns supreme. A fictional place from the mind of author James Hilton, yet Shangri-La may have at one time truly existed. For a short period in our planet’s existence, mankind lived in harmony with nature. Back when, as early hunters and gatherers, mother nature’s kingdom grew wild and free. Bountiful and fruitful, her pristine grandeur, yet untouched by the destructive hand of evolution’s new creation. Early man! Nature’s seed of self-destruction. And Shangri-La, the first to go.
