Aspen Art Museum, Colorado

During a recent trip, I visited the beautiful NEW Aspen Art Museum in Colorado. The exterior Woven Wood Screen has an intricate quality when viewed close up, and evokes curiosity from far away. The award winning Japanese Architect, Shigeru Ban, designed this 33,000 sq ft. structure to “create a harmony between Aspen’s existing architecture and the surrounding natural beauty…

Walkway on Hudson

Looking to be outside but stay closer to home? Walkway on the Hudson is a scenic walking bridge located over a wide part of the Hudson River, in Poughkeepsie. Originally an old abandoned railroad bridge after a massive fire, the bridge has been turned into a pedestrian park and historic preserve, for all to enjoy.

911 Museum NYC

My annual dedication to honoring the victims from 911, included a visit to the 911 Museum, located on the actual site of where the twin towers once resided. It was a humbling experience to walk the foot print of these buildings, viewing the remains of the steel footings that have been preserved, and see bent pieces of steel and structural pieces.

Gurney’s Inn, Montauk NY

We love to visit the beach off season. Montauk in Long Island, NY is one of our favorite places to go. A great place to stay is Gurneys Inn located right on the water. The views are spectacular, from when you turn into the parking lot off of Old Montauk Highway, to walking down the steps to the beach. And then, watch a sunset from a private deck…

Hidden Treasures in Aspen

If I was a designer in the 1960’s I like to think I could have designed a house as creative as this! My family and I stayed in this beautiful log house located in the woods in Aspen, Colorado last week. It was originally designed by Herb & Marcy Balderson many years ago. Herb, who passed away a few years ago, was a master wood worker. His artwork in the form of carved bowls, statues and iron work, graces the walls of this home and the scenic outdoors.
