To The Manor Reborn

Calling all Francophiles. Visiting Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte may require a long travel day—thanks to its 12 hours or more of flying time from Denver International Airport, plus another hour in the car upon arrival at Charles de Gaulle …but, like the hours spent making your own buttery croissants and pain au chocolat, it is absolutely worth it.

Making Fur Fly

There is a scene in the fifth season of Friends when longtime vegetarian Phoebe Buffay inherits a family heirloom mink coat in horror…and then promptly falls in love with it when she sees her fur-swaddled reflection in a mirror. Indeed, there’s a reason people have been donning fur coats for millennia, and it has nothing to do with the perceived glamour: they are as warm in January as a Colorado 14er is cold. And like an old piece of quality jewelry, fur can often be restyled to suit today’s tastes—transformed from a clunky coat your great Aunt Gertrude wore into something you’d see on a Milan runway today.

Paradise Found

In the heart of Colorado’s Sawatch Range, Bud and Betsy Knapp were propelled by a vision to preserve the land, water and wildlife in a rustic and timeless setting. Their labor of love culminated in what is known as Knapp Ranch—a sacred place that celebrates the rugged and the wild, the beauty and the history of those who came before them, and will continue to honor this legacy in perpetuity.
