When winter starts to drag on and the cold outside begins to make me feel trapped indoors for too long, I like to venture out to museums and botanic gardens. I find this practice ideal because just when it’s cold and inhospitable outside, I can focus on interesting things like art and archeology and history and blooms in greenhouses.

- Far View
- Because Mesa Verde is slanted to the south, the proper geological term is cuesta, not mesa. Far View Lodge
- New Year in Cornwall
- In an effort to avoid losing our hard-won vacation time, we booked a year-end holiday in Cornwall to celebrate the New Year, relax at a cozy cottage on the coast, and to recover from a very busy year.
