I am sitting in a lodge on the side of a mountain in Grand Lake, Colorado and I must confess that this is one of my favorite places in the world. Partly for the scenery, but mostly for the community, solitude, and environmental ethic of this little corner of heaven. Shadowcliff lodge was founded several decades ago on the premise that a mountain resort could be built on sustainability principles. Since that time, they have endeavored to buy locally (as much as possible), recycle everything possible, use limited electricity (purchased from renewable sources), and limit the amount of water used. They have been very successful and this place has become a summer-time haven for like-minded people who enjoy the mountains.
So, I will be here for the next few days. Internet access is somewhat limited, but there is plenty to do. Adam, you would love it here.
