Let the Summer Begin! – Crystal Water

It truly feels like summer has started here in the Rocky Mountains. As I sit here to write, a symphony of birds sing, the sun is shining, the grass is vivid green after the wonderful rains of late, the sky is "Windex" blue, and we are in full swing at the Ranch.

One of the unexpected consequences of the recent Pandemic was walking around our neighborhood about 300% more than ever before, just to get out of the house, off of zoom and into some fresh air. And fortunately, nature was not that disturbed by our viral woes, and the flowers and birds and butterflies went right on with their rhythms. Read More

Coming out of Hibernation – Crystal Water

As we start to wake the Feathered Pipe Ranch up out of its seasonal hibernation, the ground is still covered in snow. While we haven't been sitting around idly, I feel we are all coming out of a sort of hibernation as we start to engage more socially and travel again. It sure feels good! Read More
