Monday afternoon. Well-rested after an exhausting eclipse viewing excursion, we embark on a proper mini-break. We drive up to Estes Park for a three-night stay in the Old Caretaker’s Cottage at McGregor Mountain Lodge. Upon arrival, the cabin delights. It’s spacious, bright, clean, comfortable. Equipped with full-size fridge, comfortable recliners, and calming mountain views. Better than The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua.

Last week, Phil and I went for a hike in the Lumpy Ridge area. This was our first hike of the New Year and the first time this winter that we ventured out onto proper trails that were covered in snow, even if it was just an inch or two.
