The kitchen is much more than a place to cook and eat, it's "home base" — a kind of family headquarters. Learn the secrets of smart kitchen decorating: creativity, function and versatility.

These pics are great, I can't believe I missed seeing them earlier. Having a welcoming kitchen really is the best thing about a home. Our kitchen isn't big but we made it roomier by taking our small round table out of the eating area and bringing in the

That sounds so nice!


The mountains near you are the Rockies right? I could google it I'm sure but it's more fun to talk about it :)

I just did a Google on it, LOL!


No, the Rocky mountains are a broad mountain range in western North America. The Rocky Mountains stretch more than 4,800 kilometers (3,000 miles) from northernmost British Columbia, in Canada, to New Mexico, in the United States. The range's highest peak is Colorado's Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet (4,401 meters) above sea level. Though part of North America's Pacific Cordillera, the Rockies are distinct from the Pacific Coast Ranges which are located immediately adjacent to the Pacific coast.


The Eastern edge of the rockies rises impressively above the Interior Plains of central North America, including the Front Range which runs from northern New Mexico to northern Colorado, the Wind River Range and Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming, the Crazy Mountains and the Rocky Mountain Front of Montana, and the Clark Range of Alberta, along with a series of ranges in Canada called the Continental Ranges. Mount Robson in British Columbia, at 3,954 meters (12,972 ft), is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.


The western edge of the Rockies, such as the Wasatch Range near Salt Lake City, Utah, divides the Great Basin from other mountains further to the west. The Rockies do not extend into the Yukon or Alaska, or into central British Columbia. The Rocky Mountain System within the United States is a United States physiographic region.

The mountains here are lovely, here's a little clip about the elevation at Banff Alberta



Skiing/Snowboarding
The Banff-Canmore area has the good fortune of being one of the most popular ski destinations in North America. Five world-class ski areas are accessible by car within 45 minutes driving time or less from either of these communities. All areas are over 5000ft in elevation at the base and the highest has a top elevation of 9000 ft. This high elevation combined with some 30 ft of total snow accumulation annually and a cool winter climate allow these areas to operate from mid November to late May.


Fishing is nice
