Hesperus - Blue Lake Ranch, Colorado, 10 PM, a day in August 2010:
Oh, and if you want to go to one of the best bed and breakfasts/ hotels/ inns in the USA for an unforgettable stay, book a room or cottage for a few nights at Blue Lake Ranch in southern Colorado. The breakfasts are amazing, and Jackie makes the best biscuits and sausage gravy (a very American thing) and chicken tortilla casserole (a very Southwestern dish) for the breakfast table. What a treat! The gardens are gorgeous, the place is like an oasis in the dry high-desert and pine forests. It is the kind of place you are glad you know about as a refuge that day when you need to get away. It is probably one of the best and nicest places I have stayed at ever.
