  Some birds are just more personable than others.  This one gets cool points for its determination.   We are fairly sure that it is a swallow.  It had taken this open window as its view for the day and had no intention of moving.   Ralph had stuck up a casual conversation with the bird while I was absent.  They were sharing pleasantries in Ralphs fluent bird dialect.   We watched with interest as numerous swiftly flying swallows made their way to the edge of the building while this little guy just sat resting and watching the fun.  Although there was no sign of a nest, there had to be one to accommodate the numbers of birds doing fly-bys.   Our young friend provided lots of entertainment until Ralph decided to attempt a closer shot.  At that point the swallow decided that the intervie...

  Small, tranquil and extremely appealing are some of the words that come to mind when we think about The Viacito Lake area just North East of Durango.   It features a large lake area with cabins both for year round use and vacations.  Wildlife is plentiful, and you may find the artistic tendencies within you are generated.   The lake is totally surrounded by mountains.  These are splendid all year round.  In the winter they sparkle with the snow.     There are marinas , businesses and restaurants which give the area a definite resort flair.   The location is close enough to Bayfield to make it convenient for shopping and employment.   In 2002 there was a horrendous fire which ruined acres of towering timber.  The aftermath was heart wrenching, but today the forest is making a magnific...

  We were driving along when the sign caught our eye.  "SuperUltraMegaTastyFood!!"  Really? Ralph looked at me and said " I think they may need our opinion."Opinions are something we have no lack of, it was lunch time so we stopped.The greeter statue gave the place warmth and more credibility, then there was a lovely lake view and the waitress was a breath of fresh air.  Her delightful British accent made the resort feeling more real (a true English woman.)  We had apparently escaped reality.The menu was extensive and had several of our favorite things.  I selected "fish and chips, (and our English waitress assured me that it was exceptional and since she was English she would know)" and Ralph asked for the "Chicken Fried Steak."A short time later a generous basket and sumptuous plate ...
