In celebration of our upcoming anniversary, my wife and I visited Rocky Mountain National Park this fall. We love camping and neither of us had seen this great example of accessible wildness. Our trip turned out to be much more educational and exciting than expected. We had close encounters with wildlife, a tour of a lodgepole forest ravaged by pine beetles and a brush with wildfire all while surrounded by a gorgeous landscape.
Are you ready for the start of ski season? Stock up on excitement and gear over the next two weekends in Santa Fe. Watch 'In Deep' Nov. 6th and 'Flakes' on Nov. 15 at the Jean Cocteau Theater for deep powder fun and big mountain thrills.

Adventurers in the 1800's saw the Arctic and Antarctic as remote and harsh, though beautiful places. The South and North Poles were the furthest frontiers of the day and were sought by scores of early explorers. Among those early explorers were artists who preserved the rugged beauty of the poles. Fortunately, we have their images as an artistic record from the days before Climate Change.
