From the Publisher...

Happy New Year to you!

It is incredible to think that 2016 is behind us and 2017 is here! I am always excited when the new year rolls around. There is something about that clock striking midnight that creates a sense of hope and excitement. January brings colder temps and a chance of snow. You might want to be sure you are stocked with marshmallows for hot chocolate and vanilla for the snow cream. Crock Pots will be filled with homemade soups, spicy chilis and pork laden pinto beans to warm the tummy and sooth the soul. It's winter in the mountains.

While we want you to enjoy this season and take advantage of the unobstructed views of mountain vistas, also keep in the back of your mind that spring less than 80 days away (March 20). Winter is a good time to plan that patio or pond renovation and even an outdoor fireplace to enjoy when the temps are warmer. You can't forget Valentine’s Day, well you can but you might find yourself “out in the cold”!

If cabin fever sets in get out and visit a gallery, do some shopping, enjoy lunch or dinner with friends or strike out to discover any of our neighboring towns. A day trip in any direction is a great cure for the winter blues.

We appreciate you reading our magazine; we love to hear how much you enjoy it and we want to thank you for supporting our advertisers. Mention that you saw their ad and thank them for their advertising, it is what brings this magazine to you.

Again, wishes for a great year and bless you all!
