Mountains of the Mind
- A Day in Cambridge
- I went to Cambridge for the day to visit with a friend. We had a lovely lunch at La Tasca and then wandered town for a while dipping leisurely in and out of shops.
- Bierstadt Lake
- 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.
- Haleakala in the Fog
- On the last day of our visit, we check out of the Ritz Carlton and ask to rent a car. Our flight is late in the evening and we hope to sightsee during the day. But the car rental desk at the Ritz refuses to rent us one of the many dozens of vehicles in their lot because we have just checked out.
