Just another wonderful visit to Mohonk Mountain House

Mohonk Mount House

Any year is special when one has the chance to visit Mohonk Mountain House twice in a twelve-month period.  That makes 2010 a great year!

I was last here in April for a business meeting, and I wrote about the experience on More to Come…. This weekend, it has been all pleasure with the family on their first visit to this unique place.

So rather than write, I’ll just post pictures of the buildings and landscape around Lake Mohonk along with photos of the family enjoying the weekend. We’ve been bouldering (well, Andrew and Claire took the hike that doubles as rock climbing), enjoying the fantastic spa and fitness club, touring the beautiful gardens, swimming in the lake, hiking to the tower where the picture at the top of the post was taken, and eating more gourmet food than I care to remember. Luckily, if you can hike, run, and swim you feel you’re fighting back against the expanding waistline. I think we’re ready to tackle a second week of college visits!

So here’s my final post from Mohonk in 2010, written in a rocking chair on the porch overlooking the lake.  Let’s hope 2011 is another special year.

More to come…

After the trip was over I simply continued writing. Over the years the blog has changed to have a more definite focus aligned with my interest in places that matter, reading well, roots music, and more.

This work has been driven by my passion for connecting people in thriving, sustainable, and vibrant communities.
