View of Frontier Lodge With Christmas Decorations

Friday, December 28th, 2007

Below you can see a 360 view of the Frontier Lodge with all the Christmas decorations. Use your mouse to click and drag 360 degrees around the room. You can spot “Fuzzy” up above the saloon doors as well. Sorry I didn’t have time to take one of the Hualapai Dining Room but it looked really nice as well.


New Bison In The Frontier Lodge - “Fuzzy”

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

We received a wonderful and unexpected gift from the Hansen family (Dan’s sister and brother-in-law) when they were visiting us over Christmas. Uncle Pete had Carrie’s name and as she opened a big box a huge buffalo head was staring at back at her! She absolutely couldn’t believe it, and first thought it was bigger version of a stuffed animal she had bought, but no - it was an actual stuffed buffalo mount that Uncle Pete found on eBay in WI where they live. He will keep his previous name of “Fuzzy” as he is just that. He hangs above the “Bison Room” in the Frontier Lodge. Thank you Hansen’s and Merry Christmas!

Time Lapse of Decorating the Lodge for Christmas

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Click on the Quicktime .mov file below to see a 9 hour time lapse video comprised of over 100 shots to create a 10 second summary. It is very quick and pretty cool! It is something I have always wanted to do but this year I finally remembered. I will post a high quality image of the lodge completely decorated when we eventually get it 100% done sometime this week.

It actually rained…

Saturday, December 1st, 2007

We had actual, measurable rainfall here for the first time in months. It has sprinkled once or twice but yesterday it rained all Friday night and all day Saturday with a total of over 1.6 inches which is something we desperately needed. Also beneficial because it was a nice steady rain instead of the usual 1 hour downpour that runs into the washes instead of soaking in for the plant life.
