Come enjoy the tranquility of the wilderness and the earthy colors of fall at Deer River.

Creator Kess Crystal has been a Resident for years, enjoying a multifaceted virtual journey. In fact, Kess believes that “everyone’s experience is different and can also change over the years. Back when I first joined SL I was a DJ in a rock club, my own rock club, so I had started to live in the entrepreneurial worlds of SL even back then.”

Last winter you may have visited Snowdrops, another region Kess created. Encouraged by the experience, Kess tells us, “Autumn/Fall is my favourite season and I started to get the urge to create something for Autumn while binge watching a series called Virgin River on Netflix.” Bodies of water and the grace of their movement play a big role in the atmosphere in Deer River. From the stunning azure blue of the river to the breathtaking waterfall and ponds, there is a palpable sense of wonder from being close to the water here. In fact, Kess says the waterfall was a direct homage to the show, and that “fans of the show will notice a lot of nods to the series… the log cabin, the food truck both feature, as well as of course the river that runs throughout the region.”

Deer River is filled with opportunities for bucolic recreation. Put on your hiking boots and explore the numerous trails, go horseback riding, and stop off at the outdoor cafe for a pumpkin spice latte. 

Kess succinctly describes the inspiration behind this woodland reverie: “My vision was to create a photogenic seasonal {region} where the natural beauty of the colours of the season are the star.”

Kess is also the co-owner of Seraphimsl.com, saying “through that, I get to meet a lot of the incredibly talented creators whose work I use to create my scenes. Second Life has brought me many real life friendships… It’s the bonds with those people that keep us in this wonderful world.”

Drop in for a soothing dose of nature at Deer River today, but be sure to watch out for the wily raccoons that like to hide by the camping tents to steal some snacks!
