Christmas Unplugged

We checked this yurt out on a warm day in July. We're going back there today.

The yurt sits in a remote spot in the Colorado Rocky Mountains at 9,000 ft. surrounded by forest and wildlife. Mainly moose. And piles and piles of snow.

I'm curious as to what it feels like to live in the round, to look up at the circular skylight, like nomads in Mongolia.

I first laid eyes on a yurt outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A tiny village where everyone lives in a yurt! I'm drawn to anything unconventional or out of the ordinary, and these huts are definitely unique.

Then I started reading about them. I watched movies that took place in Mongolia. I ordered books on Mongolia. I was hooked, and I'd never even stayed in one.

Until now. I am on my way to Yurtville!

I'll see you later.

Merry Christmas everybody.
